Hunters interested in participating in “game-damage” hunts on private land or possible management seasons this year have until July 15 to register online with Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks.
Hunters from this roster may be identified for three types of hunts: game damage, management season, and dispersal. The roster is used by FWP to efficiently respond to landowners in the prevention or reduction of damage primarily caused by deer, elk and antelope.
Prospective hunters can register online at fwp.mt.gov. Click “Hunt Roster”. Registration can be completed on personal computers, at most public libraries, and at any FWP office. To register, hunters will need their ALS number.
A final roster, randomly generated from all online registrations, will be posted by August 1 on the FWP website at fwp.mt.gov.
The hunts, if they occur, would mostly take place anytime from August 15 through February 15, 2014.
