Overwhelmed: Visitation increases induced by Covid-19 are pushing Montana's state parks--already struggling with insufficient staff, limited infrastructure, and growing shoulder season attendance--to their breaking point.
Paying it Back (and Forward): Each year FWP distributes nearly $30 million to Montana landowners in Block Management Program payments, conservation easements, and other wildlife habitat and hunter access programs.
Awesome Opportunities: From walleye and catfish to whitefish and cutthroat, Montana offers up a dizzying diversity of angling action.
Good Maintenance Makes Good Neighbors: FWP puts a high priority on controlling weeds, building fences, and managing timber on wildlife management areas across Montana.
A Guiding Light: Recent recommendations from the Governor's Grizzly Bear Advisory Council are helping wildlife managers better understand exactly how Montanans want bears and people to coexist.
Our Point of View: Standing Up--and Sitting Down--for the Public Trust.
Tasting Montana: Whiskey Blackened Elk Roast.
Outdoors Portrait: Snow Bunting
