Missoula, MT -(Ammoland.com)- Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks will hold a public hearing Aug. 14 at 6 p.m. at its Missoula office (3201 Spurgin Road) on proposed new rules to establish a voluntary wolf management stamp for anyone to make a donation to Montana’s wolf management program.
The proposed rules would direct FWP to establish a $20 wolf stamp and would define how the voluntary donations would be allocated to wolf management activities.
Under the new rules, money received from the sale of wolf management stamps would be considered a donation and must first be used to pay for the cost of administering the stamp program. The remainder would be required to be equally distributed for livestock loss reduction program grants, wolf monitoring, habitat projects, scientific research, public education and outreach, and law enforcement.
Other major communities around the state will also hold hearings on August 14, and comments on the proposal will be taken through Friday, Aug. 22.
To see the complete list of hearing locations and to view the proposed rules and comment, visit MTFWP.
