Montana State law (MCA 87-6-401) prohibits anyone from hunting or attempting to hunt game animals using bait. Baiting includes the placing, exposing, depositing, distributing or scattering of food sources as a lure or attractant. Basically, you can't put out food to lure in wild animals.

If you or someone you know has any information about the man pictured above, you are asked to call the Montana FWP violation reporting hotline at 1-800-TIP-MONT. Callers may be eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000. To read the full press release, click here.
