Montana FWP Commission To Change Wolf Regulation Setting Process
By Toby Trigger
According to Dr. Bob Inman Furbearer and Large Carnivore Coordinator for Montana FWP the wolf tentative regulations will be placed on the December agenda this year instead of the Spring agenda as it has been since 2012.
“The intent is to get all the people concerned about deer, elk and wolves in the room at the same time.” Said Dr. Inman.
The change is hoped to address the fact that attendance at the spring wolf meeting and December deer and elk meetings are made up of two distinct groups.
By addressing wolf, deer and elk harvest at the same time in December the FWP Commission hopes to ultimately free up some time during the spring meeting.
As they adjust to a new meeting schedule that was typically every month to an every-other month schedule, finding ways to combine interests will be necessary.
