Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks is seeking comment on a proposed rule to carry out a new law that allows salvaging of antelope, deer, elk or moose killed in collisions with cars, trucks and other motor vehicles.

The rule offers a framework for permits for the public to legally possess road-killed animals. Under the proposed rule, a person who wants to salvage an antelope, deer, elk or moose killed on the highway must present the animal to a peace officer or at an FWP office to obtain a possession permit.
