In central Montana five hunting districts are way over population objectives for cow elk. In an attempt to bring those numbers down, Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks had proposed going to some form of cow-only elk hunting in the areas and offering more elk B tags over the counter instead of through a special draw. On Monday the Fish and Wildlife Commission decided against making that decision now for next year’s hunting season. Instead, the group will wait until its February meeting to discuss the problem and may not make a decision until data from this year’s shoulder season hunts is tallied in August. One question is whether the commission will suggest dropping the long shoulder seasons entirely.
