These areas offer excellent opportunity to hunt whitetail and mule deer, elk, antelope, upland game birds, turkey, and waterfowl. Please be sure to read the county information below for 2021 hunting outlooks and the BMA tables for specific hunting opportunities.

How to use Region 6 BMP

Two kinds of BMAs are available in Region 6, classified as Type I and Type II BMAs. In this region, Type I BMAs are areas in which hunters administer their own permission by using daily sign-in boxes. Type II BMAs are areas in which written permission is given to the hunters by landowners.

Hunters can obtain specific BMA maps and rules on the FWP website under Region 6 after August 15th, on site at sign-in box locations or at landowner residences. Region 6 maps showing all BMAs are on display at the Glasgow and Havre offices. The Statewide Hunter Access Guide is available on-line and by mail through all regional offices. Hunters can use this guide and the included map and chart to compare size, geographical location, and hunting opportunities desired on each BMA.

The Region 6 Block Management Staff encourages you to share your experiences on specific BMAs by sending comment cards, pictures, or letters to the Glasgow office. You may also drop off comment or survey cards in sign-in boxes. We share these with landowners to show your appreciation, and to help improve the program.

Other Region 6 Hunting Oppotunities

Other hunting access opportunities exist within the region as well. There are 13 Wildlife Management Areas (WMA) open to hunting. For WMA rules and regulations please visit the Wildlife Management Area website at https://fwp.mt.gov/conservation/wildlife-management-areas.
Other hunting access opportunities in Region 6 are Regional Access Projects (RAP), Access Public Lands (APL), Unlocking Public Lands (UPL), Public Access Land Agreements (PALA). These other opportunities are listed in the last table of the Region 6 information and can also be found on the MFWP Hunt Planner Map under other access information tab.
