The Commission will be asked to vote to approve Chapter 3- Black Bear Hunting Seasons, Chapter 61- Collection of Shed Antler and Horns and Chapter 32- Regulation Governing Firearm Cartridges and Archery Equipment and two animal translocations - sage grouse hens and broods to North Dakota and pygmy rabbits to Washington.  The full agenda with all presentations is available on the Game and Fish website.
