The Natural Resources Board decided to change some rules about next falls deer hunt after getting complaints from snowmobilers and legislative leaders.
The board approved a four-day hunt north of Highway 8 in early December, but it will only include areas where deer populations are estimated at 20 percent above the state goals.
Wildlife experts with the DNR wanted the hunt to be statewide.
The balls in the legislature's court now, because the matter must be resolved by February 15 or the rules will revert to the same as last year's
