Season-setting meetings scheduled around the state
The Fish and Wildlife Commission approved 2022/2023 hunting regulations proposals for public comment at its meeting Tuesday, Dec. 14.
The draft proposals are being compiled and will be available online at fwp.mt.gov/regproposals as soon as possible. Public comment on the 2022/2023 hunting regulation proposals will be taken through Jan. 14. Comments can be submitted online at fwp.mt.gov/regproposals or by email to email@example.com.
This is a second opportunity for the public to provide input on 2022/2023 draft hunting regulation proposals. Earlier this fall in an effort of simplify the regulations, Fish, Wildlife & Parks biologists offered regulations proposals that combine some hunting districts, reduce some license and permit types, and eliminate hunting district portions. FWP staff held informational meetings around the state, and the public was invited to submit comments on those initial proposals. FWP adjusted proposals based on public comment and presented them to the commission. The commission approved the draft regulations for public comment at the Tuesday meeting.
During December and early January, FWP will hold season-setting meetings around the state to discuss the draft hunting regulations with interested members of the public. At the meetings, biologists will present information on the draft hunting regulations approved by the commission. Following the presentations, there will be time for questions and answers.
Each of FWP’s regions will hold a virtual season-setting meeting as well as part of their January Citizen Advisory Committee meetings.
The commission will make a final decision on the 2022/2023 hunting regulations at its meeting in February.
