Montana has a long history of hunting, from early inhabitants before it was even a state to the first organized seasons meant to preserve game populations for future generations. But the state has never seen a hunt like the one taking place right now in Carbon County. The special chronic wasting disease hunt started on Dec. 15 and will continue until 200 mule deer and 200 whitetails are harvested by hunters who purchased the 1,200 special tags. By Monday, Fish, Wildlife and Parks had already checked 107 deer. Hunters were driving from as far away as Washington with rumors of hunters mobilizing from Georgia. To read more about the first-of-its-kind hunt, check out my story in this week’s MontanaUntamed.com.
