-- The Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR) will hold three public meetings to solicit comments on proposed hunting and trapping regulations for resident game species and selected migratory game birds for both the 2008-2009 and 2009-2010 hunting license year.

"We look forward to discussing our proposals with hunters, trappers and other citizens interested in Maryland's wildlife resources," said Paul A. Peditto, Wildlife and Heritage Service director.
