About FWP > Boards, Councils & Committeees Upland Game Bird Enhancement Program Advisory Council

The Upland Game Bird Enhancement Program serves Montana’s residents and visitors by working with landowners to enhance upland game bird habitats and public hunting opportunities.

 

FWP appointed a 12-member advisory council to lead an effort to advise FWP on a long-term strategic plan for the Upland Game Bird Enhancement Program (UGBEP); monitor program activities annually; and recommend appropriate rules for FWP to consider. Council membership includes upland game bird hunters, a chamber of commerce representative, conservationists, an upland game bird biologist, landowners, one of whom is enrolled in the Block Management program, and 2 state legislators. The Council will participate in the effort to identify, define, and make recommendations for the implementation of a long-term strategic plan.
