Fish & Wildlife Commission Work Session Set For Sept. 18 In Helena
Montana’s Fish & Wildlife Commission will hold a work session on Sept. 18 in Helena to further discuss proposed hunting season guidelines aimed at reducing some elk populations.
The proposed elk “shoulder season” guidelines would allow state wildlife managers to develop hunting seasons before and after Montana’s general hunting seasons to improve elk-harvest management in specific locales.
Commissioners will also discuss proposed changes to administrative rules that address game damage.
The work session will begin at 11 a.m. at FWP Headquarters, 1420 E. 6th Ave. Work session audio will be streamed live via the FWP website at fwp.mt.gov. The work session also will be telecast to each FWP regional headquarters.
