Montana’s Fish, Wildlife & Parks Commission will meet Thursday, Oct. 9, at the FWP Headquarters building on 1420 East Sixth Ave., beginning at 8 a.m.

The commission will take final action on conservation easements on the Gordon Ranch in Blaine County; donation of a conservation easement which would protect the upland view from the Sacagawea Springs near Great Falls; and the acquisition of lands near the Ninepipe Wildlife Management Area for recreational hunting and to conserve bird habitat.  Final decisions will also be made on the 2004-2007 fishing regulations and on the lease of a long-established archery range located within Makoshika State Park, near Glendive.

Tentative decisions will be made on a rule that outlines the prairie dog translocation policy; a rule to guide the auction of one deer and one elk license with the proceeds benefiting mule deer and elk conservation; and on modifications to the Smith River rule that relate to landowner floating opportunities.
