Send by email Printer-friendly version Share this

Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks is seeking public comment on proposed changes to the 2011 mountain lion hunting quotas and sub-quotas.

Public comment is also sought on an adjustment to the allocation of special mountain lion licenses that would allow an unsuccessful special lion license applicant to purchase a general lion license valid for any open district statewide during the fall season and for any open quota areas in FWP Region 2 during the winter season.

These items will be addressed along with the proposed 2012 wolf season at a public information meeting in Missoula on May 22 at the Holiday Inn Missoula Downtown at the Park from 7-9 p.m.

Details on the proposed changes are available for review on the FWP website. To comment, and to find more details on the proposed changes, visit FWP’s website at fwp.mt.gov. Click “Hunting.” Send written comments to: FWP–Wildlife Bureau, Attn: Public Comment; P.O. Box 200701; Helena, MT 59620-0701.

The public can comment through Friday, May 25 at 5 p.m. The adoption of the proposed mountain lion hunting quotas and special mountain lion license allocation adjustment is set for the June 14 FWP Commission meeting.
