Spring's melting snow packs and high water can create swift, cold currents and dangerous eddies for boaters. Such conditions, combined with ice cold waters, make hypothermia a serious threat.   Boaters heading out for the first time this season need to assess the condition of their boat and gear, and check to be certain they are equipped for the colder, early boating season.

Loons are appearing on northwestern Montana lakes and preparing to nest. Loons are among the state's "commuter" species. They winter along the Pacific coastline and return here in late April. One female banded in 1997 migrated almost 1,000 miles from the coast of central California to Montana in less than five days. This 15-year old loon made it safely back to Montana again this spring.

The loons' eerie calls echo across the glassy, evening waters of lakes in northwestern Montana, somehow enhancing the solitude. In fact, they require solitude spring and summer to successfully breed and raise their young. Of the 65 pairs that attempt to nest in Montana, only about 30 pairs successfully hatch and raise one to two chicks each year.

Montana’s TIP-MONT "crimestopper" program is at work year round because wildlife crimes and vandalism occur year round. Recently 18 people who phoned in information useful to Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks in solving crimes received a total of $11,400 in reward money. The potential reward and the fact reports can remain anonymous are two good reasons to keep the TIP-MONT number handy. It is 1-800-TIP-MONT, or 1-800-847-6668.

Montana has numerous laws prohibiting the capture, feeding, possession and harassment of wildlife—both game and nongame species. These laws also protect Montana's wild animals from becoming "pets." Oddly, no single state law specifically states: "Do not remove newborn animals from their mothers, or from the wild."   Yet, in most cases, when newborn animals are removed from the wild they are healthy with a parent nearby.
