Missouri Conservationist: Jan 1999





1999 Wildlife Code Changes

Each year the Conservation Department's Regulations Committee reviews all of the rules in the Wildlife Code of Missouri to determine whether the existing regulations continue to sustain the state's fish, forest and wildlife resources with the least amount of regimentation and inconvenience to the public. When needs are identified, rule changes are recommended to the Conservation Commission for approval.
