The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is seeking applications from Minnesota residents to serve two-year terms on the Game and Fish Fund Oversight Committee. The Game and Fish Fund has two oversight committees–the Fisheries Oversight Committee (FOC) and the Wildlife Oversight Committee (WOC). Applications must be submitted online by Monday, September 20.
The Game and Fish Fund contains revenue from hunting and fishing license sales, a sales tax on lottery tickets, sales of critical habitat license plates and other sources of revenue–including a reimbursement based on the federal excise tax on certain hunting, fishing and boating equipment. The committees monitor proper expenditure of funds received from the revenue sources.
To apply, applicants must be a Minnesota resident and have purchased a personal or commercial Minnesota license for hunting, fishing or trapping since January 1, 2020, or licensed their vehicle with an active critical habitat license plate. Additional information about committees and applications can be found here.
