Commission - Region 6
The FWP Commission will meet via conference call Dec. 10 to take final action on three land matters and to hear an update on the state’s wolf hunting season.
The call is set to begin at 9 a.m. Conference call connections and public comment opportunities will be offered at each FWP regional office; in Havre at the Great Northern Inn at 1345 1st Street; and at FWP's Helena headquarters, 1420 E. Sixth Ave.
Commissioners will consider approving the 2,992-acre Milk River Ranch purchase north of Havre; a 981-acre purchase that would become part of the existing Seven Sisters Wildlife Management Area on the Yellowstone River near Sidney; and the donation of 1,050 acres on the Missouri River southwest of Big Sandy.
The wolf hunting update will include information on the 2012 season's harvest so far and additional information on the upcoming trapping season, which opens Dec. 15. The wolf hunting and trapping seasons will close Feb. 28, 2013.
