Montana Wildlife Federation President Bill Geer has been reappointed to the Private Land/Public Wildlife Council for another term. It’s an important group that brings together landowners, hunters, conservation groups and other interests to work on the tough issues surrounding public hunting access to private lands.
Geer, who ran the state of Utah’s wildlife agency during his career as a professional wildlife biologist, brings a wealth of experience to the position. He understands the intricacies of managing a public trust resource – wildlife – that often lives on private land. And he understands the delicate balance that’s needed between hunters and landowners to effectively manage deer, elk and other game species. We’re looking forward to productive discussions within the council, and know that Montana’s hunters will be well represented with Geer serving on it.
