Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks (FWP) recently completed public “scoping” as a first step in the process of developing a long-term bison conservation and management plan for the state. According to FWP, the plan will be developed as a programmatic environmental impact statement (EIS), which will address issues associated with bison and options for their long-term management as a Montana wildlife species.
CLICK HERE to see what FWP assembled as a summary of the primary issues and concerns identified from the comments, questions and suggestions received. As expected, the nearly 23,000 comments received contain some contradictions due to the stark difference between those commenting. While some want the Montana Department of Livestock intricately involved, others want no involvement from the Department.
