Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks’ Missouri River Breaks Elk Working Group will meet at 7 p.m. on May 1 in the upstairs meeting room at the First State Bank in Malta.
According to FWP Region 6 Wildlife Program Manager Mark Sullivan, the meeting will include discussions on this year’s elk population survey results, an upcoming research project, possible adjustment of hunting district population objectives and proposed changes in some antlerless elk hunting quotas.
The working group includes a mix of landowners, outfitters, hunters, ranchers and resource agency representatives. It was formed in the mid-1990s and meets on an as-needed basis to address a wide range of issues that affect elk management, hunting regulations and hunter distribution in the Missouri River Breaks.
The public is welcome and encouraged to attend the group’s meetings. For more information, please call 406-228-3700.
