Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks proposes to renew the Mount Haggin Wildlife Management Area-South grazing lease for a 10-year term. The renewed lease would allow three current local livestock producers to continue their usage, as well as increase an exchange of use agreement for one ranch. This lease is part of a cooperative grazing program between Fish, Wildlife, & Parks, the U.S. Forest Service, and Bureau of Land Management. Full implementation of this proposal will positively affect 29,811 acres, 25 streams and 64 stream miles across state, federal, and private lands for the benefit of fish, wildlife, and the recreating public. 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 the Bozeman or Butte FWP offices, or viewed on FWP’s website: http://fwp.mt.gov.
