The big game season will not be extended 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. 19 decided to let the general big game season in Region 4 run its course and end Nov. 28.

Based on data gathered at the Augusta check station and anecdotal evidence elsewhere, the elk harvest was slightly above average, while the mule deer harvest was slightly below average and the white-tailed deer harvest was above average.
