HELENA – The deadline to submit public comment on 2022/2023 hunting regulations proposals is Friday, Jan. 21.
Earlier this fall, Fish, Wildlife & Parks biologists offered science-based 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 the proposals based on public comment and presented them to the commission on Dec. 14.
This is a second public comment opportunity focused on the Dec. 14 commission adoptions.
To view the regulation proposals and to comment online, go to the FWP website. Comments can also be emailed email@example.com.
The commission will make final decisions at its Feb. 4 meeting.
