Commission to consider amendments on upland game bird, black bear regulations

Commission to consider amendments on upland game bird, black bear regulations

HELENA – The Montana Fish and Wildlife Commission will consider two amendments to the proposed 2024 Upland Game Bird Regulations and one to the Black Bear Regulations when it meets Feb. 16.

The proposed 2024 Upland Game Bird Regulations are currently out for public comment. The two amendments would adjust the regulations for nonresident bird hunters.

The first amendment would move the upland game bird season start date from Sept. 1 to Sept. 15 for nonresidents. The second amendment would adjust the bird dog training season start date for nonresidents from Aug. 15 to Sept. 1.

The amendments are sponsored by Commission Chair Lesley Robinson but were requested by FWP. The amendments reflect comments FWP has received on the regulations.

Black Bears

The commission will also consider an amendment from Commissioner Brian Cebull that would adjust statewide black bear regulations.

The amendment would have the spring season end June 15, subject to already established quotas and subquotas. The amendment would set the season in Bear Management Unit (BMU) 520 to May 1 to June 15. It would also set a female bear quota of 11 in the fall and 12 in the spring for BMU 580. The amendment would also establish that “any BMU without a quota or sub-quota … would close with regular public notice after May 31 if the cumulative spring harvest to that point exceeds 37 percent of female bears.”

Cebull’s amendment would also expand the pilot project in FWP Region 1 that allowed hunters to submit extracted teeth rather than presenting head and carcass to FWP. This would expand to FWP regions 2, 3, and 4 and would require hunters to submit two extracted molars rather than one.

The commission will take comment on the two amendments through Jan. 31. To comment on the amendments, please email FWPComm@mt.gov. Comment on the amendments can also be made during the Feb. 16 commission meeting.

I'm watching this closely .... I think this change has to be legislated ... so I think we're in the clear for 2024?

I think if it’s up for discussion it’s a done deal. Should know next week.

It appears they are allowing for comments until the end of February. If I had to guess, I say it will pass and be in effect this year.

This will cost Montana businesses that benefit enormously from non-resident hunters and I can't believe it is even proposed. For sure I will not be going back if it passes.

Yep , can't find where it passed.

I'm betting businesses would be just fine with the change.
Residents all over the West are stepping up and asking for more regulations in their favor, not going to change any time soon.
Limited resources to hunt and more hunters going afield.

I watched the zoom meeting yesterday, what didn’t pass was nonresident season start date for Region 6 only. Locals in Region 6 are the ones leading the effort.

I’ll be calling Region 6 FWP office tomorrow for more info. I extended my motel reservation several days due to not knowing exact dates. Motel wanted me to update my stay ASAP.

No on birds, Yes on Dogs

In the end, restricting the nonhunting delays only to Region 6 for the 2024 season was opposed 5-1 with only Commissioner Jeff Burrows, of Hamilton, supporting it.

It’s official, no change of upland hunting dates for nonresident 2024 season. Nonresident dog training season on wild birds changed to start on September 1.

Its obvious to me the locals dont like out of state bird hunters. At least where i go. Last year was horrendous with hunters. Some idiot posted a you tube video about the hunting and specifically said where to go
