Over the course of July and August, Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks biologist Dean Waltee classified 121 moose across the area to determine post neonatal calf and bull to cow ratios. Through doing so, Waltee is able to provide data on herd production through an accumulation of pregnancy, female health and calf survival.
At the end of December, Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks wildlife biologist Dean Waltee completed a moose survey within hunting district 320, which encompasses the Tobacco Root Mountains.
A Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks’ game warden’s job description is not cut and dry. For instance, last week, Madison Valley game warden Shane Brozovich and Ruby Valley game warden Ryan Picken were hard at work in Sheridan, rescuing a calf moose from a barbed wire fence.
