Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks just released an environmental assessment for a land acquisition project next to Seven Sisters Wildlife Management.  The project involves purchasing 981 acres at $1,326 per acre for a total of $1.3 million.

The land is located near the town of Crane in Richland County, just south of Sidney and will be an addition to Seven Sister WMA.  FWP’s goals are to conserve riparian habitat along the lower Yellowstone River and provide new hunting opportunities for the public.  The addition will also provide lots of wildlife viewing opportunities and more river access.
