Montana’s 2011 general big game hunting seasons will end as planned one-half hour after sunset on Sunday, Nov. 27 and will not be extended, state wildlife officials confirmed today.
“We are not planning any big game season extensions anywhere in the state this year,” said Ken McDonald, chief of Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks’ wildlife bureau. “If specific population or damage problems emerge, we’ll use management seasons or game damage hunts to address them.”
Hunters must have registered for the game damage roster in July. Game damage and management season information is available online at Game Damage.
Montana’s wolf hunting season, however, will remain open in most wolf management units through Dec. 31, and may be extended by the FWP Commission to Jan. 31, 2012. Montana’s over all wolf harvest quota is 220. So far, 98 wolves have been taken and WMU 390 is closed.
