Regulations typo corrected

Spend much time on a keyboard and you’ll end up with an embarrassing typo.

Wildlife and Parks is admitting it is their turn.

Some printed hunting regulations state any unused deer permit from the 2008-09 deer seasons can be used during the special January season for antlerless whitetails.

Obviously the department meant any unused permit from the 2009 hunting seasons can be used during the season that’s designed to lower whitetail deer numbers in areas with high populations.

Unless exempt hunters most also possess a 2010 hunting license to participate in the season that begins Friday.

The mistake has been corrected online and in recently printed regulation booklets

The season runs Jan. 1-10 in units 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16 and 19.

It will remain open through Jan. 17 in units 7, 8, and 15.
