Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks proposes to extend the wolf hunting and trapping seasons in northwestern Montana.
The agency is currently setting hunting seasons for the 2020-2021 biennium. Its Region One office, which covers Lincoln, Flathead, Sanders and Lake Counties, announced the proposals in a press release Wednesday. If approved by the rule-making Fish and Wildlife Commission, they would:
- Extend the general hunting season from Sept. 15-March 15 to Aug. 15-March 31.
- Extend the trapping season’s end date from Feb. 28 to March 15.
- Increase the individual limit from five wolves per person to 10.
