The Fish and Wildlife Commission is meeting on Thursday, and it's a doozy.
Included in the agenda are pen-raised pheasant releases, further delaying outfitter caps on the Madison River, amending the temperatures that trigger hoot-owl restrictions for cutthroat trout streams, a proposed acquisition for a new Wildlife Management Area at the base of the Big Snowy Mountains, and more.
Meeting Date: August 25, 2022
Location: Helena, State Capitol, Room 317
or virtually via Zoom
Start Time: 8:30 a.m.
To comment on any of these at Thursday's meeting, you must either attend in person or register to provide remote testimony by noon on Wednesday.
