Officials with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources are concerned that development is crowding land that`s been set aside for hunting. The state has nearly 2,000 square miles of wildlife management areas, also know as WMAs. The pristine prairies, wetlands and forests are great for wildlife and hunting, but are also attracting developers and homebuilders especially near the Twin Cities. The DNR wants more space between development and hunting areas, but some worry that will infringe on the rights of property owners.
