Glendive Deer Management Hunt Extended

An archery only management season hunt has been extended for the area in and adjacent to the town of Glendive, Montana. The City of Glendive has requested and has been given approval to extend the hunt to February 15, 2013 in an effort to reduce the number of mule deer in and immediately adjacent to town.

For this management season hunt, archery hunting is the only means of take due to safety concerns imposed by the proximity to residential areas and businesses.  A total of 200 special antlerless mule deer licenses were made available, first-come first-served, limited to 5 per person starting at the beginning of the general archery season.  Remaining Glendive management season licenses can be purchased from any FWP license agent, $10 for residents and $75 for nonresidents.  Only Glendive management season licenses will be valid during the season extension (December 7, 2012 through February 15, 2013).  Resident and nonresident general deer “A” and Region 7 antlerless mule deer “B” licenses were valid during the regular season butwill not be valid during the season extension.

The Glendive management season licenses are valid on property administered by the City of Glendive, Montana, Makoshika State Park and approved private property owners in an area that extends 1 to 3 miles surrounding Glendive.  The hunt area is legally defined as T15N R55E Sections 2, 3, 10, 11; T15N R56E Section 1, T16N R55E Sections 23-26, 35, 36; T16N R56E Sections 19 and 30.  Hunters must obtain permission for City of Glendive property and approved private property from Glendive City Hall (406-377-3318); hunters need to sign in at Glendive City Hall Monday thru Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.  Permission to hunt Makoshika State Park needs to be obtained from Makoshika State Park at the main office (406-377-6256).
