Hunting Rules Could Get Scrutiny

(AP) _ Some rural North Dakota legislators are upset at the Game and Fish Department. So they're backing a proposal to have legislative review of the agency's hunting seasons and rules.

Pettibone Representative Duane DeKrey is sponsoring the bill. It got a hearing today in the House Natural Resources Committee.

DeKrey says it would make the agency more responsive to complaints from rural North Dakotans.

Right now the Game and Fish Department submits its proposed hunting seasons and rules to the governor. He puts them into effect by making a proclamation.

The change would require Game and Fish to use a rules process to set hunting seasons. New hunting regulations would be reviewed by a legislative committee.

Roger Rostvet is the game and fish deputy director. He says the proposed new process would take a lot longer -- and make it tougher to set seasons.
