Fish & Wildlife Commission To Meet In Helena Nov. 12
Montana’s Fish & Wildlife Commission will meet Nov. 12 in Helena.
Commissioners will take final action on 2016 fishing regulations; elk hunting shoulder seasons pilot projects beginning in late November in up to seven hunting districts; duck-hunting zone adjustments in Montana’s portion of the Central Flyway; and an addition to the Wall Creek Wildlife Management Area near Ennis.
On land matters, commissioners will be asked to endorse a lease agreement for the Round Up Fishing Access Site on the Blackfoot River; and additions to the Blackfoot-Clearwater WMA west of Ovando, the Fresno Tailwater WMA near Havre, and the Three mile WMA near Stevensville.
FWP also will ask the commission to endorse a timber sale on the Blackfoot-Clearwater WMA and the translocation of sage grouse from Montana to Alberta, Canada.
Commissioners also will consider a proposed biennial rule for public comment that would allow FWP to prohibit floating near the Supply Ditch on the Bitterroot River when river conditions are unsafe for public use.
The meeting will end with an informational session on Montana’s upcoming biennial hunting season setting process.
