Amendment Would Split Hunting District
Two more amendments to agenda items for the December Fish and Wildlife Commission meeting are available for public review online.
The first amendment looks to change the hunting district boundary in 313 just north of Yellowstone National Park. This is a deer and elk hunting district and the proposed change would add a portion of HD 314 into HD 313. Commissioner Susan Brooke proposed the amendment.

The second amendment would split FWP region 7 into two hunting district — north and south — for antelope. Currently, antelope are managed as a region without any hunting district split. The amendment is proposed by Commissioner William Lane.
