This summary of bison history and activities in the West is being offered online by Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks to provide additional information related to the possible restoration of bison in the state. The document examines wild bison programs in other regions, the overall conservation history of bison, and some of the management activities and philosophies that have found various degrees of success in other areas of the West.
The comment period is open-ended.
FWP accepted public comment on bison management and conservation in late 2010 and early 2011. More opportunities to comment on management and conservation issues will be available in the near future. Please limit any comments at this time and through this avenue to content of the background document only.
