Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks is seeking up to 12 individuals to serve on a working group charged with reaching consensus on recommendations for elk archery hunting regulation alternatives.
The working group will lead an effort to examine effective elk management and elk archery regulations in several north-central Montana hunting districts. The area includes most of the Missouri Breaks and 22 other elk hunting districts.
FWP is seeking a representative mix of working group members willing to support a model of conservation in Montana that incorporates different values and results in effective elk management. Working group members will address crowding, equity, consistency, effective population management and other issues of concern in the area. Applicants will be assessed on the perspective they represent and for their willingness and ability to respectfully engage in a structured decision-making process.
Working group members will be appointed by FWP Director Joe Maurier in consultation with the FWP Commission. Appointed members will be expected to participate in at least four facilitated meetings between July and October. Members will be asked to contribute to additional discussions throughout the term.
