Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks are looking for early public input and ideas for the 2018-2019 Montana hunting regulations. FWP Information and Education Program Manager Vivaca Crowser explains.

“What we are really wanting to do is just hear from folks on what is working, what is not, what are some of the things that you would like to see incorporated into the next version of the hunting regulations and what are some of your concerns,” said Crowser. “Right now on the FWP website you can follow through a short series of open ended survey questions and also find a spot to enter general comment.”

According to Crowser, FWP will use those surveys and comments to formulate proposals on regulations they think need to be in place during the next two seasons.

“We take those to the Fish and Wildlife Commission in December and they adjust and then approve those,” Crowser said. “Then they go out for a round of public comment and other recommendations for adjustments this early winter. In January we will be traveling all around to most of the communities here in the region, holding meetings for folks to come and ask questions and to make comments on those.”

In February, the Fish and Wildlife Commission will make the final decision. You can voice your concerns and opinions right here.
