Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks is proposing to accept the donation of 1,050 acres of property located approximately 13 miles southwest of Big Sandy. The property is found along Spring Coulee and also contains riverfront property along the Missouri River. The primary purpose of this proposal is to conserve and enhance native areas that provide important habitat for game and nongame species. The property would be managed as a Wildlife Management Area to protect fish and wildlife resources and to provide additional recreational opportunities to the general public. Protecting and enhancing the existing habitat is expected to increase use by game animals, including mule deer, antelope, sharp-tailed grouse, Hungarian partridge, and mourning doves along with a variety of native species of birds, fish, reptiles, amphibians, and small mammals.
