FWS Proposes Rule Changes Relating to Migratory Bird Hunting Seasons on Tribal Land

The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service (FWS) is proposing a revised process for establishing special regulations for certain Tribes on Federal Indian reservations, off-reservation trust lands, and ceded lands for migratory bird hunting seasons. The proposal includes elimination of the current requirement that Tribes submit annual proposals to FWS for review and approval. FWS will accept public comments on the proposed rule change through May 8, 2023.
