Milk River Ranch Fee Title Proposal Draft EA

Acquisitions, Trades & Leases

Thu Oct 18 16:13:00 MDT 2012

Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks is proposing to purchase approximately 2,992 acres of property for a Wildlife Management Area located about 42 miles northwest of Havre. The property is located along the Milk River and consists primarily of Milk River riparian habitats and associated uplands. The primary purpose of this proposal is to conserve and enhance native areas that provide important habitat for game and nongame species and to provide additional recreational opportunities for the general public. This habitat provides critical winter range for big game species and the Milk River serves as a migratory corridor for many species. Protecting and enhancing the existing habitat is expected to increase use by game animals, including mule deer, elk, white-tailed deer, antelope, pheasants, sharp-tailed grouse, and waterfowl along with a variety of native nongame species of birds, fish, reptiles, amphibians, and small mammals.
