The commission's regular monthly meeting will be in Lansing. The seven-member panel is appointed by the governor and sets policies on hunting, fishing and other outdoor issues.

Its committee on wildlife and fisheries will deal with the crossbow deer hunting survey. Also, an advisory panel on state parks will set goals for the year.

Department of Natural Resources Director Keith Creagh is scheduled to announce executive orders during the meeting on topics including dip netting for smelt, suckers and other fish species and use of fireworks at state parks and recreation areas.
