The next meeting of the Missouri Breaks Elk Working Group will feature a review of the recently completed regular big-game season and a discussion of a possible game-damage season in the Region 6 portion of the Missouri River Breaks.
The meeting will be held Thursday, Dec. 7 from 7 to 9 p.m. in the upstairs meeting room of Malta’s First State Bank, located on 1st Street East just south of the railroad underpass. Anyone with an interest in elk management in the Missouri River Breaks is welcome to attend the meeting. Regular participants include a mix of landowners, outfitters, hunters, ranchers and resource agency representatives. These occasional meetings are convened by Fish, Wildlife & Parks.
The main topics for the Dec. 7 meeting include a discussion and recap of the 2006 hunting season and the need for a game-damage and/or management season in the Breaks this winter. The group will also discuss objectives for the 2008 elk hunting seasons in the Breaks and will hear an update on the ongoing survey of Missouri Breaks elk hunters.
