DNR seeks input on 3 proposed hunting regulations changes

Anyone interested in small-game hunting can give input on three hunting topics to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources through Friday, June 19, online at www.mndnr.gov/wildlifeinput, or in writing. 

The survey covers the following proposals:

  • Reducing the bag limit for white-tailed jack rabbits from the current daily combined limit of 10 to one. This change would only affect the bag limit on jack rabbits and would not affect the bag limit on cottontail rabbits or snowshoe hares.
  • Increasing the small game possession limit on all species (except turkeys) to three times the daily limit. Currently some species are two times the daily limit while others are three times.
  • Allowing electric trolling motors on three migratory waterfowl feeding and resting areas in Le Sueur County.

There are no public meetings scheduled to take input on these topics. A written copy of the survey is available upon request by contacting the DNR Information Center by telephone at 
888-646-6367, or by emailing jason.abraham@state.mn.us. Written comments may be addressed to: Season Comments, DNR Section of Wildlife, 500 Lafayette Road, St. Paul, MN 55155-4007.

  1. I think increasing small game limits to three times is a really bad idea, it will most likely lead to over harvest
