Acquisitions, Trades & Leases
Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks (MFWP) proposes to renew an agricultural (crop / hay) lease on 30 acres of the 86 acre Amelia Island Wildlife Management Area (WMA). The proposed lease will be for a 1-year period (April 1, 2014 – March 31, 2015). The purpose of the proposed lease is to provide cover and forage for wildlife, especially white-tailed deer and pheasants. Amelia Island WMA in eastern Montana is located north of the town of Hysham along the Yellowstone River in Treasure County. Amelia Island WMA comprises 86 acres in Section 33 of T7N R36E and more particularly designated on the enclosed map for field locations. This proposal is relevant only to approximately 30 acres of irrigated crop land.
