Hunting Season Changes Up For Debate

Posted: Updated:
KALISPELL -

Montana's Fish, Wildlife, and Parks is asking people to weigh in on some tentative hunting changes.

The meeting starts at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday at the Red Lion Inn in Kalispell.

Because of disease, some of the changes include taking a more conservative approach to deer hunting east of the mountains.

All comments are due by January 24.

Changes will be finalized at the commissioner's meeting in Helena on February 13.

An FWP spokesman, John Fraley, says he has seen as many as for hundred people come out to these kind of meetings.

"It's kind of a way for everyone around the region, all four counties, to come together, speak directly to our Fish, Wildlife, and Parks commissioner about what they'd like to see," explained Fraley.

If you cannot make the meeting, you can still share your two cents online here.
