MORGANTOWN (AP) -

State wildlife officials will meet in Morgantown this month to discuss new regulations for hunting, trapping and fishing.

The quarterly meeting of the West Virginia Natural Resources Commission is set for April 28 at the Lakeview Resort and Conference Center. The public is invited to attend and offer comments.

Agenda items include discussion of this year's section meetings and a questionnaire for sportsmen and landowners.

The commission will also discuss new 2013 regulations for big game, and reptiles and amphibians.

It will also discuss proposed changes for hunting and trapping regulations in 2014-15, and fishing regulations for next year.
