Public input sought on Plum Island hunting and fishing

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service could open Plum Island and a portion of Detroit Island to deer hunting along with fishing from Plum Island's shores. So the agency is seeking public comment on those plans.  Fish and Wildlife spokesman Dustan Hoffman says the deer hunting proposal is needed to enhance environmental protection of the lands.


The last updates to hunting and fishing programs in the Green Bay National Wildlife Refuge, which includes Plum Island and Detroit Island,  was in 2012.  An open house on the latest revisions will be held at Washington Island School in the Rutledge Room is set from 6:00 PM until 8:00 PM on May 8th.
