Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks will hold a hearing on Jan. 16 to discuss proposed changes to hunting regulations in the Bitterroot Valley.
The Missoulian reported that regulations are reviewed routinely every two years. In most cases the regulations from 2017 will be retained for 2018 but there are some notable changes taking place in Region 2.
The proposed changes include new elk hunting shoulder seasons in some districts of Region 2, a change to trophy mule deer tags in some districts to allow for more hunting of small bucks and a change to allow the purchase of private property Region 2 elk licenses over the counter before the start of general season.
