This week we’ve got a little news, but then we’re diving into Montana’s Elk Management plan and Randy tells us how to get involved and be a part of the process. The last time the elk management plan was updated was in 2005! So it might be a while before we get to weigh in again.
In Minnesota, the Department of Natural Resources Commission recently finalized banning the use of lead ammo on 56 Science and Natural Areas as well as a few State Parks that offer special hunting opportunities.
In Wyoming, we have an update on the ongoing corner crossing saga, with some new information potentially stopping the appeal.
In Montana, a grizzly bear was recently photographed in the Pryor mountains which is the first time one has been confirmed being there in well over 100 years.
Also In Montana the Trust for Public Land, MKH Montana, and the Lolo National Forest worked together recently to permanently protect nearly 6000 acres of land in the northwest part of the state. This brings the total acreage close to 26,000 acres of land being added to the Lolo National Forest in the last three years.
