Grizzly Hunt Rule in Montana

Western-Bear-Foundation-LogoJust an update quickly on the recent ruling by the Montana Commissioners to not enact a hunting season for grizzly bears this year.

We actively supported the idea of having a hunting season for grizzly bears in Montana this year. Due to the recent delisting and movement of control into state hands there was an opportunity for Montana to have such a season. We sent letters to commission and worked with other stakeholders to try and influence a decision but as many of you heard that was a futile effort as the commission voted unanimously against a season.
