By Moosetrack Megan


The Montana FWP Commission last week approved hunting regulations that could be put into place if the grizzly bear is de-listed as a threatened or endangered species.

It would allow a grizzly license to be sold for $50, plus applicable conservation and bow hunting fees. A $50 trophy fee would be imposed if the hunt was successful. Out of state hunters would have to pay $1,000 for a tag.

The proposed hunting area is in the Greater Yellowstone area.

Hunters would have to wait 7 years after drawing a tag to try to draw another.
