BILLINGS — The City of Roundup has scheduled a four-month mule deer archery hunt in and adjacent to town to help manage the number of animals in the area.

Licenses for the special management hunt go on sale at 5 a.m. Sept. 15, 2015, both online and at license dealers throughout Montana. The hunt will run from Oct. 15, 2015, through Feb. 15, 2016.

Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks issued 80 either-sex licenses specifically for the Roundup management season at $10 each for residents and $75 each for non-residents. Each hunter is limited to two special Roundup licenses, which are available on a first-come first-served basis. Hunters also must have a current Montana conservation license and a bow-and-arrow license.

In addition, hunters need to obtain permission from the Roundup city offices, 34 3rd Ave. W., between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. The city may assign hunters to appropriate sites.

Because of the proximity to homes, businesses, hunters are restricted to archery equipment.

The hunt will take place on property owned by the City of Roundup, Musselshell County, Duane Brewer, Irene Snortland and Green Oil Field Service. Maps detailing the hunt area and rules are available at the Roundup city offices.

Hunters are required to bag and properly dispose of the deer viscera at the Roundup Landfill and report their harvest to the Roundup city offices at (406) 323-2804.

All hunters have the option of donating their harvest to the local Food Bank or a suitable charity and receiving a tax deduction. The local Food Bank accepts only game that has been processed by a certified processor.
