Montana’s Fish, Wildlife & Parks Commission will meet in the Old Supreme Court Chambers at the Montana State Capitol in Helena on Dec. 10.
At the meeting, which will begin at 8:30 a.m., the commission will tackle a number of proposed 2010-11 hunting season items, including season dates, hunting district boundaries and quota ranges for antelope, bison, bighorn sheep, black bear, deer, elk, moose, mountain goat, mountain lions, and wolves. Commissioners also will consider proposed upland game bird regulations, turkey quotas, game damage and management season quotas, and the license and permit allocation process for deer, elk and antelope.
Final action on 2010's nonresident combination hunting license rule, and a proposed ruling on some exotic species classifications, is also on the docket.
In three land-related matters, commissioners will take final action on a property addition to FWP headquarters in Glasgow, a fishing access site near Glendive, and a land exchange with the Montana Department of Transportation on the Blackfoot Clearwater Wildlife Management Area west of Ovando. In addition, FWP will seek the commission's endorsement of a proposal to exchange some FWP land on Custer Ave. in Helena with Northwestern Energy.
