The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is planning to add one wildlife refuge to the list of refuges opened to hunting and to increase hunting at six other refuges. Hamden Slough National Wildlife Refuge in Minnesota will be opened to migratory bird and big-game hunting. Hunting opportunities will be expanded to include migratory birds and upland game at the Agassiz National Wildlife Refuge in Minnesota and the Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge in Maryland. The Whittlesey Creek National Wildlife Refuge in Wisconsin will be opened to big-game hunting. Hunting at the Bayou Cocodrie, Tensas River, and the Upper Ouachita National Wildlife Refuges will be enhanced with the addition of land to these Louisiana refuges. The Upper Ouachita will be opened to turkey hunting. The Stillwater Wildlife Management Area, Nevada will be closed to hunting because the land will revert back to management by the Bureau of Reclamation and the Service no longer has authority to manage Stillwater.Comments are being accepted until July 10. The rule can be found at http://edocket.access.gpo.gov/2008/pdf/E8-12193.pdf. Please support the Fish and Wildlife Service’s continued efforts to open and expand hunting programs on wildlife refuges by submitting comments on this rule.
