The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has prepared a draft Hunt Plan and Environmental Assessment for lands managed as part of the Great River National Wildlife Refuge (NWR). The draft Hunt Plan seeks to open fee title land transferred to the Service through the Farm Service Agency to upland game and big game hunting and modify hunting opportunities on existing open lands, while the draft Environmental Assessment outlines the environmental effects of the alternatives considered.
The public is encouraged to review and comment on the draft Hunt Plan and Environmental Assessment from August 18, 2014 to September 18, 2014. Click here for a copy of the Draft Hunt Plan and/or Environmental Assessment. For a hard copy of the documents, please call or email the Refuge at 573-847-2333 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Comments must be received by mail or email on or before September 18, 2014. Those wishing to mail their comments to the Refuge can send them to U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, P.O. Box 88, Annada, Missouri 63330. For more information, please call 573-847-2333.
