Proposal to Use Cattle Grazing for Managing Elk Habitat on a Portion of Spotted Dog WMA and Neighboring Private Lands--Draft EA

Development, Improvements, and Enhancements

02/27/2019

FWP proposes to implement an exchange-of-use cooperative grazing system (grazing system) on the Spotted Dog Wildlife Management Area (SDWMA) and adjacent private lands in Powell County northeast of Deer Lodge, Montana. The proposed grazing system would seek to establish a balanced distribution of grazing by elk and cattle to improve grassland habitats across SDWMA and private ownership boundaries. The grazing system would be implemented on a portion (~8% or 2,800 acres) of SDWMA and would remain in effect for approximately 6 years beginning in early summer 2019.
