Headlines

There will be no big game season extension in Fish, Wildlife and Parks Region 4, northcentral Montana, department officials say.

Following procedures as dictated by the administrative rules of Montana, FWP officials in a conference call Nov. 21 decided to let the general big game season in Region 4 run its course and end Nov. 30.

Based on data gathered at the Augusta check station and anecdotal evidence elsewhere, the Region 4 elk harvest is slightly below the long-term average, while the deer harvest is closer to average for both white-tailed and mule deer.
