DNR releases hunting and trapping guide in Spanish
Spanish speakers now can learn about the state’s hunting and trapping regulations in their primary language.
The DNR Division of Fish & Wildlife has released a six-page hunting and trapping guide in Spanish called “Caza y Captura Reglamento.”
A recent national survey by D.J. Case and Associates for the Nature of Americans found that 17 percent of Spanish-speaking adults are interested in hunting. The study also concluded that Spanish-speaking adults have the highest level of support for nature-related programming and funding. The survey results are at www.natureofamericans.org.
The guide is an effort to better communicate hunting and trapping guidelines to the Spanish- speaking community. The goal of the new, condensed guide is to help Spanish speakers overcome barriers such as lack of information and experience.
Caza y Captura Regulamento can be found at wildlife.IN.gov/files/fw-2017_Indiana_Hunting_Guide_Spanish.pdf.
