MILES CITY--Severe winter weather in portions of eastern Montana prompted the Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks Commission to establish special game damage hunts in portions of Hunting Districts 703 and 705.

Hunting for the special season is open for:

* antlerless mule deer by holders of special antlerless mule-deer damage hunt license, unused "A" deer license or unused antlerless mule deer "B" license valid in Montana during the 2000 general season.

* hunting of antlerless white-tailed deer by holders of special antlerless white-tailed deer damage hunt license, unused "A" deer license or unused antlerless white-tailed "B" license valid in Montana during the 2000 general season.

The hunts began Dec. 20 and are set to end Jan. 28, 2001. Liceses are $8 for residents and $15 for nonresidents.

The additional licenses for this hunt will be issued until 250 antlerless B mule deer damage licenses have been sold. Any resident or non-resident may purchase two and will be sold on a first come, first served basis. Special game damage licenses are on sale at FWP Region 7 headquarters Miles City (406-232-0900), Baker Trading Post in Baker (406-778-2411), and Wibaux General Store in Wibaux (406-795-2575).
