SOCIAL CIRCLE, Ga. (AP) — Georgia wildlife officials are inviting public comments on proposed changes to hunting regulations.

The Department of Natural Resources says some of the proposed changes include: uniform statewide deer season; expanding the hunting opportunity for alligators and bears; modifying either-sex days to manage white-tailed deer; and regulating hunting and other activities on wildlife management areas and other state lands.

Three public hearings are scheduled. All are at 7 p.m. The dates and locations are as follows:

— April 14 at Cornerstone Christian Church in Dawsonville;

— April 15 in the Mathematics Building Auditorium at Middle Georgia State College in Macon;

— April 16 at the Coffee County Courthouse in Douglas.

Anyone interested in offering input can attend a meeting or can submit a statement electronically or by mail.
