Error In Sunrise/sunset Table Noted
Friday, October 25, 1996
This news release was archived on Monday, July 1, 2002

Hunters heading afield for the opening of the general statewide big game season on Sunday, October 27, should be aware that the sunrise/sunset tables printed in Montana's 1996 Big Game Hunting Regulations (page 70), and reprinted as a pocket-sized folder, contain an error related to the start of legal shooting times on opening day.

Those hunters who plan to hunt on opening day and who will consult the tables to determine legal shooting hours on October 27 should observe the times listed for the period of October 28-30, NOT the times listed for the period October 25-27. The times listed for the period beginning Oct. 28 reflect the scheduled switch back to Mountain Standard Time from Daylight Savings Time on the morning of the 27th.

Hunters desiring more information concerning legal shooting hours are urged to contact their local game warden or nearest Fish, Wildlife & Parks office.
