Public hearing on Quiet Waters Initiative available via videoconference in Miles City

Wed Jan 04 10:44:00 MST 2017

A petition, known as the Quiet Waters Initiative, was submitted to the Montana Fish and Wildlife Commission this past spring by Backcountry Hunters and Anglers. The petition states that Montana has experienced advanced motorized technology on its waterways, which has potentially opened up waters previously thought to be unusable by motorized water craft. At its regular May meeting, the Commission initiated rulemaking on the petition, stating, in part, that the Commission should consider being proactive instead of reactive to the changes in recreation on Montana’s waterways to avoid conflicts and protect traditional and safe recreational uses. For anyone who is interested in listening to the proceedings or giving public comment, a meeting will be available via videoconference at the Miles City Fish, Wildlife & Parks Headquarters on Monday, Jan. 9 at 6 p.m.
