Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks will hold a public hearing on a proposal to establish a wolf management stamp on Thursday, Aug. 14 at 6 p.m. at its Region Three headquarters in Bozeman (1400 S. 19th Ave.).
Under this proposed rule, FWP would create a wolf stamp to be issued in return for a $20 donation toward wolf management. Residents and non-residents could donate towards multiple stamps.
Money received from the sale of wolf management stamps would first be used to pay for the cost of administering the stamp program and the remainder would be equally distributed between livestock loss reduction program grants, wolf monitoring, habitat projects, scientific research, public education and outreach, and law enforcement.
Other major communities around the state will also hold hearings on August 14, and comments on the proposal will be taken through Friday, Aug. 22.
