Montana wildlife commissioners are considering a proposal to increase the number of bison that can be harvested in two hunting seasons proposed on the southern end of Paradise Valley north of Gardiner.  Fish, Wildlife and Parks Region 3 Spokesperson Andrea Jones says between now and February 13th, comments are being acceptedregarding the proposal to raise the quota from the current 50 animals to 80.  The changes would also make hunting permits available for two rather than three hunt periods.  Jones says the first of the periods would run from November 15th to January 15th and the second from January 16th through February 15th.  She says such an arrangement would give hunters in each period a fairly even opportunity for success considering the movement of bison out of Yellowstone into the hunt areas.  Jones also points out that the quotas would raise the maximum harvest levels and be flexible for wildlife biologists to set lower levels during those years a smaller harvest would be appropriate.  The Fish and Wildlife Commission will consider the public comment and render its decision during a meeting in Helena February 15th.

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
