Due to the partial government shutdown, several services of the Department of Natural Resources will be affected. Here is a partial list:
State parks, state forest campgrounds, state recreation areas and state-owned marinas are closed. Full refunds will be issued to campers who have reservations for days the parks, recreation areas or marinas are closed due to the partial state government shutdown.
Archery deer season will open on Oct. 1.
DNR-operated deer and bear check stations will not be open.
Hunting and fishing license sales online and at retailers will function as long as the state's computer servers remain functional.
DNR field offices, Operations Service Centers and visitor centers are closed.
Waterfowl hunting season will open Oct. 6. However, if the partial shutdown is still in effect, there will be no staff available to run the draws at managed waterfowl hunts.
The DNR will not issue burn permits.
