The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) will host a public workshop in Columbia County to discuss proposed changes to deer-hunting rules.

The meeting will be held Oct. 1, at 7 p.m. in the Columbia County School Board Administrative Complex Auditorium, 372 W. Duval St., in Lake City.

This workshop will offer hunters and other interested persons the opportunity to meet with FWC wildlife biologists and share their thoughts about proposals to increase the quality of Florida’s deer herd by altering antler requirements and bag limits.

According to Roland Garcia, FWC’s regional director for the North Central Region, “I’ve received several calls from folks who expressed concern about this meeting. They thought the changes to the deer hunting rules had already been made and their opinion wouldn’t count. That’s not true. No course of action has been taken. These are proposed recommendations that will be brought to the FWC Commissioners, who will make the final decision on the deer hunting rules.

“We want people to attend this meeting and tell us what they think about these proposed changes,” Garcia said.
