Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks would like to remind hunters of the importance of reading and understanding current hunting regulations.

FWP considers and implements changes to hunting seasons for most species every two years. There are important updates which hunters should be aware of related to deer, elk, antelope and wolves before heading out the door this year.

Regulations come in printed form and can also be downloaded online at fwp.mt.gov/hunting/regulations.

Remember, it's the hunter's responsibility to know the hunting regulations. Ignorance of rules is not an excuse for violating them!
