FWP Accepting Applications For Block Management

Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks is accepting applications from landowners who are interested in participating in the 2024 Block Management Program. Application deadline is June 1.

Through the Block Management Program, landowners and FWP work together to help manage wildlife and public hunting activities on enrolled lands. Landowners and FWP enter into voluntary agreements that determine how hunting will be conducted on the landowner’s property. Items such as permission requirements, times when permission will be granted, hunting opportunities provided and vehicle use are a few examples of what is covered in an agreement.

Block Management offers various benefits to landowners enrolled in the program. These benefits include assistance of FWP staff to help monitor hunting activities, compensation to help offset impacts associated with allowing public hunting, wildlife management, a free subscription to Montana Outdoors magazine and a complimentary, non-transferable sportsman or big game combination (nonresident) license. Landowners do not relinquish any rights by enrolling and are covered by Montana’s recreational liability statute as well as livestock loss reimbursement, both of which are extended to landowners who allow access at no charge. For more information, go to block-management, contact your local biologist, warden or FWP regional access manager or contact the Parks and Outdoor Recreation Division’s main office at 406-444-3750 or email
