Anyone attending or listening in to the Fish, Wildlife and Parks Commission meeting on Thursday may have been confused. The commission set tentative hunting regulations for the state and also chose an archery elk plan for the Missouri River Breaks and 20 surrounding hunting districts. The commission also decided to allow hunters to shoot bison under special situations when the bison wander out of the Gardiner Basin. And lastly, the commission pared down the quota range for antelope and deer across the state, although the specific license and permit numbers won’t be nailed down until after this spring’s wildlife surveys have been flown.
Here is a LINK to Brett’s story on elk archery regulations in the Billings Gazette.
