FWP Announces Antlerless Elk Game Damage Hunt in Elkhorns

Beginning August 15, Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks will conduct an antlerless elk game damage hunt in Hunting District 380 in the Boulder Valley.    The season was initiated to address elk damage that has become a regular occurrence in the area over several years.

The game damage hunt will include four one-week hunt periods, and the season will conclude prior to the opening of the general rifle season.   The hunt is for antlerless elk only.

Archery hunters should be aware that rifle hunters will also be out in the hunt area primarily from the Compton and Smith Ranches south into the Boulder Valley.   National Forest lands are not included in this hunt.

Hunters were drawn from the FWP Game Damage Hunt Roster.
