Season Setting Scoping Meetings Are Coming Up In Region 6

Glasgow's Is June 29 at the Cottonwood

Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks is kicking off the biennial hunting season-setting process earlier to allow for more public engagement and greater transparency. Public involvement will begin in June and end in November.

Scoping meetings will be held for the 2024-25 seasons, along with information on the draft elk management plan.

Region 6 scoping meetings are being held in:

• Glasgow - June 29, 6 p.m., Cottonwood Inn, with a *virtual option (54250 U.S. Hwy 2)

*Virtual option link will be available at the season setting link below

In the past, public involvement happened primarily in December and January. Under this new format, scoping meetings will take place around the state from June 15 to July 15. FWP is looking to the public to provide broad input on regulation changes they’d like to see. Staff will also look for feedback on a few specific proposals, and will use that feedback to refine what regulations FWP recommends to the Fish and Wildlife Commission.

FWP will hold additional public meetings in early November to answer questions about the draft regulations that the Commission will be deciding on. Comment on the draft regulation proposals will be collected through the FWP website during the fall public commenting period. The final decisions on regulations will be made at the December Fish and Wildlife Commission meeting.
