From Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks
-- Montana hunters interested in taking part in any game-damage hunting opportunities on private land this year must register online by July 15 with Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks.
In addition to game damage hunts, those who register will also be eligible for special management season hunts. Hunts could take place anytime from Aug. 15 through Feb.15, 2010.
FWP officials stress that game-damage hunts are only offered when needed and the need for such hunts may or may not develop. A final game damage roster, randomly generated from all the online registrations, will be posted by Aug. 1.
FWP will contact hunters on the rosters if hunting opportunities arise.
Prospective hunters must register for the game damage hunt roster online at fwp.mt.gov by using a link from FWP’s home page. The Internet-based registration can be completed on personal computers, at most public libraries, and at any FWP office.
To register, hunters will need their ALS number. Prospective hunters may choose to participate in all three species lists. Hunters are urged to print the confirmation page after completing the registration process.
