Private Land-Public Wildlife Council Seeking Comments On Proposals
The Private Land/Public Wildlife Council is seeking comment through Aug. 4 on 12 draft recommendations regarding Montana’s Block Management Hunting Access Enhancement program. The council adopted draft recommendations to continue and enhance the existing program through new landowner incentives, additional funding and better maps and patrol of enrolled lands.
The Block Management program, which provides hunters with access to nearly nine million acres of private and isolated public land is due to expire March 1, 2006, unless reauthorized by the 2005 Legislature.
A copy of the draft recommendations and a process for submitting comments can be obtained through the Internet at www.fwp.state.mt.us/hunting/plpw , or by contacting Alan Charles, Helena, at 444-3798.
