Bison Hunting Season Up and Coming – Time to get ready
By Kelsey

November is upon us and the time is falling back.  With the the time change comes other opportunities to hunt big game and bison season is fast approaching.  The season is set to begin November 15 near Yellowstone National Park, with 7,834 applicants only a certain number of people will be able to harvest one of the biggest animals around the state.

The permit is either sex, with the majority of permits going to residents here in Montana, although two non residents have received permits.  The state set aside 16 licenses for Montana Indian tribes but only 10 were taken. The following six were awarded in this years drawing.

Montana’s bison hunt is set to open Nov. 15 in areas in southwestern Montana near Yellowstone National Park.

The annual hunt attracted 7,834 individual applicants for a limited number of either-sex bison licenses. Thirty-two residents and two nonresidents were successful in the drawing. Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks will monitor the amount of bison migrating in and out of the park to determine if each tag can be filled.  If there are enough bison migrating in and out of the park all the tags issued will have an opportunity to be filled.  The season end February 15, 2013.  Good luck out there.
