Blackleaf Wildlfie Management Area Haying Lease

Acquisitions, Trades & Leases

Tue Feb 26 10:57:00 MST 2013

Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks (FWP) has developed a draft Environmental Assessment (EA) prepared for the proposed action of an agricultural lease renewal on the Blackleaf Wildlife Management Area (BLWMA). The 9000 acre BLWMA is located approximately 12 air miles west of Bynum along the Rocky Mountain Front occupying land in Teton County. The proposed agricultural lease would allow haying to be utilized as a management tool to remove residual vegetation and improving vegetative condition thus enhancing the availability and palatability of elk and deer forage on the portion of the BLMWA to be hayed. Haying has been successfully used on the BLWMA in the past.
