Montana Bill Would Revise Cervid Management Laws

Montana LC 3501 would revise laws related to management of deer, elk, and antelope populations to make consideration of private landowner opinions optional rather than mandatory when deciding on hunting restrictions. The bill also would require the department to “review and redetermine sustainable population numbers at least once every 4 years and report the findings of each review to the public.” The bill has not yet been assigned to a committee.
