General Big Game Season Closed November 29


Fri Dec 04 00:00:00 MST 1998

Montana's 1998 general big game season closed Sunday, November 29.

Even though the general season has ended, hunters are encouraged to keep firearms safety a year-round priority. Tim Pool, hunter education coordinator for Fish, Wildlife & Parks in Helena, said curious children sometimes will handle guns to "check them out" or "show them off."

Pool reminded hunters putting away any gun to make sure that the chamber is empty and to store the firearm and ammunition in different locations. "Remember, firearms safety doesn't end with a season!"
