Chandler Woodcock, commissioner of the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife, will lead a public question-and-answer session during an informal Sportsmen’s Forum hosted by the Buck’s Mills Rod and Gun Club on Wednesday, Nov. 16.

Woodcock will talk about his role in the department’s efforts and answer questions about hunting, fishing and outdoors-related topics in Maine. Wildlife and fisheries biologists from the department, as well as members of the Maine Warden Service, are also expected to attend.

The public is invited to participate in the free event, which will take place in the Buck’s Mills Rod and Gun Club building on Buck’s Mills Road from 6-8 p.m. Woodcock will make brief remarks before opening the floor to questions.
