MT Fish, Wildlife & Parks (FWP), Region One, has completed an environmental assessment (EA) for a grazing project for the Woods Ranch Wildlife Management Area (WMA) in Lincoln County. The proposed action will allow cattle provided by a local rancher to graze on the WMA to better manage vegetation for wildlife cover and forage. The draft EA was out for a 30-day public review through 5:00 p.m., May 13, 2013. Four e-mailed comments were received, with FWP’s responses to the comments included in the attached decision notice. In reviewing comments, and evaluating the environmental effects and other relevant information, the proposed alternative, to allow cattle grazing on the WMA, was found to be the preferred alternative.
