New FWP Website – What are your thoughts?

FWP has a new look on their website.  Personally, I love it.  A new website design typically wouldn’t be news-worthy here, but we are wondering what you think of their new page, as it is a resource that we all use for hunting, trapping, fishing and recreating news and information.  Do you find it easy to navigate?  Do you like the old one better?  Are you still finding information you need there?

Below is the press release from last Friday.

Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks is launching a new website that will improve customer service, make it easier to use, and to provide a more mobile-friendly experience.

The completely re-designed website will have more intuitive navigation that will make finding information easier for customers, whether they click to buy a fishing license, reserve a campsite, or find information about hunting regulations.

“We’re excited to share this new website with the public,” said FWP director Martha Williams. “At FWP we know people look to us for many of their outdoor recreation opportunities. Getting out timely, accurate and useful information is important to them and to us. The new website will be critical in providing better customer service.”

The new site will be optimized for mobile devices, integrate FWP’s social media platforms, and be more friendly for traditional users like hunters, anglers and park visitors, as well as new customers who might be visiting the website for the first time.

After the initial launch, FWP will continue to update and enhance the site to accommodate user concerns and preferences, and to expand available content.

The new site will be found at the same web address: fwp.mt.gov. The new site will be available mid-day on Dec. 21.
