Garrity Mountain WMA Addition—Decision Notice

Decision Notices

01/25/2019

FWP has issued the decision notice on its proposal to acquire fee title to an approximately 154-acre land parcel, as an addition to FWP’s adjoining 9,635-acre Garrity Mountain Wildlife Management Area (GMWMA). The private parcel (currently owned by YT Timber, LLC) is located 7 miles west of Anaconda in Deer Lodge County. The GMWMA addition would protect a migration corridor for bighorn sheep and key habitat for bull trout and westslope cutthroat trout as well as preclude subdivision or development. It would be managed for fish and wildlife habitat as well as to improve public recreational access and opportunities on GMWMA. FWP will recommend that the Fish & Wildlife Commission approve this proposed acquisition and addition to GMWMA, at its regularly scheduled meeting on February 13, 2019. FWP also would then request approval from the State Board of Land Commissioners.
