Montana Fish, Wildlife, & Parks is seeking two volunteers for the Variable Priced Licensing Council. The council determines the criteria for setting the market value for outfitter-sponsored nonresident big-game hunting licenses and annually submits its fee recommendations to the FWP Commission.
“We are seeking a licensed big-game hunting outfitter and a member from the sporting public,” said Hank Worsech, chief of FWP's license bureau.
The council is made up of five members, including a commissioner and two sporting-public and two hunting-outfitter members that each represent western and eastern Montana interests. The council meets for one day, usually in early August. The appointment is for a four-year term with an option of an additional one-term reappointment. FWP Director Jeff Hagener appoints members to the Variable Priced Licensing Council.
To be considered for the committee, provide your name, address, telephone number and email address in a letter describing your interest and your big-game hunting experience. Send letters by Jan. 15, 2003 to: Montana Fish, Wildlife, & Parks, License Bureau, P.O. Box 200701, Helena, MT 59620-0701. For information call 406-444-2663.
