Registration for FWP hunt roster starts June 15

Print Article

Hunters wanting to participate this year in “game-damage” hunts on private land or during potential management seasons can register online with Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks from June 15 to July 15 to be placed on a roster.

FWP uses the roster to “efficiently respond to landowners in the prevention or reduction of damage primarily caused by deer, elk and antelope,” a news release states.

Hunters might be identified for three types of hunts: game damage, management season and dispersal.

Prospective hunters can register using their ALS number at fwp.mt.gov (click “Hunt Roster”).

FWP will conduct a computerized random drawing process that will award placement of all prospective hunters on the rosters. Results will be available by July 20 through MyFWP.

If the hunts occur, they will take place between Aug. 15, 2018, and Feb. 15, 2019.
