The enclosed Decision Notice has been prepared for the potential reintroduction of bighorn sheep into the Madison Mountains, southwest Montana. This Environmental Assessment proposes the release of 40-50 bighorn sheep into either Indian Creek or Wolf Creek drainages. 35 public comments were received during a 52-day comment period ending November 8th, 2013. This Draft EA is available for review in Helena at FWP’s Headquarters, the State Library, and the Environmental Quality Council. It also may be obtained from FWP at the address provided above, or viewed on FWP’s Internet website: http://www.fwp.mt.gov . It is my decision to proceed with the proposed project, with no changes to the Draft EA. Thank you for your interest.
