Montanans share a broad consensus that we need better elk management to address game damage, provide more hunting opportunity to more people and to get ahead of potential diseases. Please take this brief survey to help us understand what tools will help us achieve better elk management and retain our strong hunting heritage.
This is an important time for elk hunters in Montana, as we have completed three years of large-scale “shoulder seasons” and are currently undergoing a review of those seasons. At the same time, the threats to our elk herds are pressing, including their distribution on the landscape, diseases including brucellosis and Chronic Wasting Disease, and other pressures. We need all hunters engaged and speaking up to make a difference in what elk hunting looks like in the future.
Please take this survey and help the Montana Wildlife Federation understand how hunters can help us work with landowners and Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks to improve elk management.
