FWP Hosting Public Meetings To Discuss Upland Game Bird Hunting Regulations

Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks will host two meetings in January to discuss proposed 2024 upland game bird hunting regulations.

FWP staff will present proposed 2024 upland game bird seasons and regulations, along with recent trends in upland game bird populations, harvest, and hunting pressure. The meetings are being held in Glendive and Scobey, as eastern Montana attracts many resident and nonresident upland gamebird hunters. Both meetings will have options for people to attend virtually.

The purpose of the meetings is to share information and answer questions about the proposed regulations. Public comment will not be taken at the meetings but can be made online.

There was a meeting at the Dawson Community College on Jan. 16, and the next scheduled meeting is Wednesday, Jan. 17, 6 to 8 p.m., at Scobey Public Schools, 205 2nd Ave. E.. Go through the main doors in the commons area.

The public comment period on the proposals began Dec. 26. Comments will be accepted through Tuesday, Jan. 23. To see the proposed regulations and links to the virtual meeting options visit,

The final decision on the 2024 upland game bird regulations will be made by the Fish and Wildlife Commission at their meeting Friday, Feb. 16. Prior to that meeting, members of the commission may introduce amendments to the proposed regulations. Those amendments will be considered at the Feb. 16 meeting as well.

FWP ensures that its meetings are fully accessible to persons with disabilities. To request special accommodations for this meeting, or for any questions, please contact the FWP Region 6 Glasgow office at 406-228-3700, or FWP Region 7 office at 406-234-0900.
