Commission approves land purchase for new wildlife management area near Forsyth

The first of what could be several land acquisitions by Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks along the Lower Yellowstone River to improve public access was approved on Thursday.

The Fish and Wildlife Commission unanimously supported the $1.18 million purchase of the 328-acre Wildcat Bend property. The last hurdle is for the acquisition to be approved by the State Land Board, composed of Montana’s top elected officials, when it meets in November.

“This is what makes Montana great, places held in public trust for all to enjoy,” said Thomas Baumeister of the Montana Chapter of Backcountry Hunters and Anglers, in asking the commission to endorse the purchase.
