FWP is in the process of revising the statewide Elk Management Plan last adopted in 2005. At this step in the revision, FWP is seeking input on the existing elk population objectives and local elk management challenges that should be considered in the update. Input gathered during the local meetings will be used with information obtained at the statewide scale to develop a draft statewide Elk Management Plan.

In addition, a public comment period will be open from June 20 to Oct. 15. Comments can be submitted online at https://fwp.mt.gov/ aboutfwp/publ i c - comment- opportunities/elk-planscoping/ hd-info or emailed to [email protected]

Once the draft Elk Management Plan has been developed and released, there will be additional public comment opportunities offered.
