Hunting District Restrictions, Closures & Reopenings
This news release was archived on Monday, July 1, 2002

Hunters who hope to pursue mountain goats in Montana this coming fall should note a mistake in tentative mountain goat harvest quotas printed in Montana's 1997 Big Game Hunting Regulations. The regulations suggest that two either-sex mountain goat licenses will be available for use in mountain goat Hunting District 322 this coming fall. However, this is not the case; the district has been closed to all hunting in 1997. As a result, hunters submitting applications to FWP's annual special license and permit drawings should note: DO NOT apply for mountain goat licenses in Hunting District 322. The deadline for submitting applications to the annual drawing for licenses to hunt moose, bighorn sheep and mountain goats is May 1. Applications for elk and special deer permits, as well as antelope and Deer B licenses, is June 1.
