Sen. Jon Tester writes, "The Biden Administration and folks in Washington who don’t understand our Montana values decided to block funding for these important gun safety programs. Let me be clear: I think that’s a poor decision that will hurt thousands of students who benefit from these resources every year."
After two years of wolf population declines, Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks has lowered kill quotas for Montana’s wolf hunting and trapping season. But allowing early wolf trapping in more areas may threaten some grizzly bears.
A bill on Gov. Greg Gianforte’s desk would require a judge to place a bond and collect securities from plaintiffs who are seeking injunctions that prevent the ability to hunt or harvest wild game in the state.
In addition to adding the right for individuals to hunt, fish and trap to the state constitution it would also make those the preferred method of the conservation and management of wildlife in Montana.
