Wyoming’s proposal for its first grizzly hunt in decades sets a quota…
The Montana Fish and Wildlife Commission unanimously voted against the proposal after multiple guides, outfitters and other anglers spoke out against it.
The mule deer buck was shot by a hunter near the Canadian border. The other four deer came from south of Billings.
Effort features more than 30 inspection stations, decontamination stations for boats leaving Tiber and Canyon Ferry Reservoirs and a broad outreach and education effort to help ensure people recreating on Montana’s waterways are practicing clean, drain and dry techniques at all times.
The proposal that went out for public comment Friday would set a quota of two wolves in each of two Montana management areas outside the park.
