HELENA, Mont. - The closing date for public comment on the 2022/2023 hunting regulation proposals has been extended from Jan. 14 to Jan. 21.

Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks (FWP) says this is a second opportunity to provide input on the draft regulation proposals.

Biologists with FWP offered regulations proposals based on science that combine some hunting districts, reduce some license and permit types and eliminate hunting district portions.

Season-setting meetings are also being held by FWP around the state to discuss the draft hunting regulations with interested members of the public.

FWP says biologists will present information on the draft hunting regulations approved by the commission at the meetings, and there will be time for questions and answers following the presentations.

In addition, a virtual season-setting meeting will be held as part of each FWP region’s January Citizen Advisory Committee meetings.
