About FWP > Public Comments Elk Plan Public Scoping

Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks is in the process of revising the statewide Elk Management Plan last adopted in 2005. During the elk plan public scoping process, FWP sought input on the existing elk population objectives and local elk management challenges that should be considered in the update.

FWP hosted a series of public meetings this summer and fall to gather ideas about local elk management issues and population objectives. See meeting schedule
