Montana’s Fish, Wildlife & Parks Commission will meet Thursday, June 12, in Helena at the FWP Headquarters building on 1420 East Sixth Ave., beginning at 8 a.m.
During Thursday’s session, final decisions will be made on the 2003 quotas for moose, sheep, and goat and on mountain lion seasons and quotas. The 2003 upland game bird seasons will be set and the final rules adopted for the 2004 moose and sheep auction. Final decisions will also be made on two lease agreements and on designating two ponds in Glasgow and Dillon as children’s fishing ponds.
Tentative decisions will be made on the 2003 deer, elk and antelope quotas; the 2003 and 2004 furbearer quotas; and the 2003 early season migratory bird regulations. The Commission will also consider a tentative ruling creating a second elk tag as authorized by Senate Bill 122 and a tentative rule for the transportation of carcasses to Montana from states or provinces with known cases of chronic wasting disease.
An information work session, where no official action is taken, is set for June 11. Informational topics include the Private Land/Public Wildlife Advisory Council, Montana’s wolf plan, Fishing Access Site operation and maintenance and the Trappers Association.
