Shoulder Season Elk Hunt Going Well: Brett French Radio Show Preview
By angelamontana


So far the elk shoulder season hunt taking place in the White Sulphur Springs area has resulted in the harvest of more than 350 elk, according to a report by Fish, Wildlife and Parks’ Quentin Kujala. Kujala provided the number during a meeting of the Environmental Quality Council on Wednesday in Helena. It was the first time any harvest numbers had been attached to the first-time program. Kujala called the early estimate encouraging but said there is still more work to be done. The Fish and Wildlife Commission will consider at its February meeting whether to expand the shoulder season hunts to 44 more districts next year. That jump was called too big by Nick Gevock, who represents the Montana Wildlife Federation. He said his group would rather see FWP move slower in ramping up the program.
