Welcome to FWP Region 7

Fish, Wildlife and Park's, Region 7 is located in southeastern Montana. The region continues to be known for its hunting and fishing opportunities with small towns and friendly people. The landscape is a prairie environment with rolling grass-covered hills, badland buttes, ponderosa pine-covered expanses and river drainages with groves of cottonwood trees bordering agricultural fields. 75% of the land base is privately owned so most recreational opportunities involve landowner cooperation and permission.

The region provides excellent mule deer and antelope hunting. Upland game bird and waterfowl opportunities are available. Fishing in ponds/reservoirs and 3 major rivers, the Missouri, Yellowstone and Tongue, provide a unique warm water fishing experience. The paddlefish season in the spring is only available in eastern Montana. Wildlife can be viewed in many locations across the landscape.

The region has 6 state parks, 4 wildlife management areas and numerous fishing access sites for your enjoyment. Bring the family for a summer vacation or fall hunting trip and experience the beauty and wildlife of the region.
