FWP and public examine proposal for establishing additional hunting time

In areas with chronic elk over population, Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks is looking at a proposal that will create hunting shoulder seasons to give sportsmen more opportunities to harvest elk.

According to the proposal, a shoulder season is defined as any firearm season that occurs outside the five-week general firearm season. Shoulder seasons can occur between Aug. 15 and Feb. 15.

“Shoulder seasons could be early and/or late seasons and may include antlered and/or antlerless options,” the proposal states. “Shoulder seasons are designed to supplement existing harvest, not replace or reduce harvest during the existing general archery and firearm seasons.”
