Fish & Wildlife Commission Conference Call Set For Aug. 29


Tue Aug 20 14:42:00 MDT 2013

Montana's Fish & Wildlife Commission will meet via conference call on Aug. 29 to adopt the upcoming season's waterfowl hunting regulations.

The call, set to begin at 8:30 a.m, will be telecast from FWP headquarters, 1420 E. Sixth Ave., in Helena to each FWP regional office.

Commissioners also will take final action on the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribe's waterfowl regulations, a bighorn sheep research project that seeks to remove 4-6 adult sheep from western Montana to study pneumonia transmission in a herd, and Future Fisheries project funding.

On land matters, commissioners will be asked to approve a partial assignment of a conservation easement on Sourdough Creek near Bozeman.

An update will be presented to the commission on Montana's drought status and water supply.
