As Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks evaluates the past wolf hunting season, and prepares for the next, the Department would like to involve the Montana County Commissioners in the process.  FWP is aware that some counties are distressed about carnivore/predator management, and have suggestions on how to address various issues.

To that end, FWP extends this invitation to you, or to another representative from your County Commission, to attend the Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks Work Session on March 7, 2012 at 1:00 p.m. at FWP Headquarters, 1420 East 6th Avenue, Helena, to participate in the large carnivore / predator management scoping process.

Please RSVP to Regena Peterson at  or at 406-444-7826, no later than March 5, so we know how many folks to expect.

An agenda for the March 7-8 FWP Work Session and Commission Meeting is linked above as well as here.

Thank you for your interest in FWP and the resources of Montana.
