The Roundup -

Elk Shoulder Season Comment Period Extended


State wildlife officials extended comment an additional 18 days on a proposal to create guidelines for pre- and post-season hunting opportunities to aid in the reduction of some elk populations. The elk “shoulder season” guidelines would allow for developing and proposing elk hunting seasons to improve elk-harvest management in specific locales.

Public comment, which was to end last week, was extended to Aug. 28 to allow additional time for review of the proposal. The Fish & Wildlife Commission meeting set for Oct. 8 was also moved from Kalispell to Helena to accommodate anticipated public interest.
