About FWP > Public Comment Opportunities Proposed 2022-2023 Hunting Regulations

The Fish and Wildlife Commission approved 2022/2023 hunting regulations proposals for public comment at its meeting on Dec. 14. Below you will find all the proposals open for public comment. Your input is critical. Please take the time to review the proposals and leave a comment. 


Public Comment

Public comment will be taken through Jan. 21. Comments can be submitted online via the links below, which include detailed information about each proposal.

This is a second opportunity for the public to provide input on 2022/2023 draft hunting regulation proposals.

The commission will make final decisions on the draft changes at its meeting in February.

You can also comment via email to fwpwld@mt.gov.


Season-Setting Meetings

During December and early January, FWP will hold meetings around the state to discuss the draft hunting regulations with interested members of the public. Biologists will present information on the draft hunting regulations approved by the commission. Following the presentations, there will be time for questions and answers.


Background

Earlier this fall, Fish, Wildlife & Parks biologists offered science-based regulations proposals that combine some hunting districts, reduce some license and permit types, and eliminate hunting district portions. FWP staff held informational meetings around the state, and the public was invited to submit comments on those initial proposals. FWP adjusted the proposals based on public comment and presented them to the commission.
