Looks like MT might get easier to hunt!
Check out HB31. Ted Washburn(R) from Bozeman just introduced HB31. It would allow multiple tags for both hunters and trappers, allow e-callers, remove wearing hunter orange outside deer/elk season, lower the cost for non-resident tag fee from $350 to $50, and best of all, cap the state mutt population at 250. If it doesn't pass, they still might change the existing laws (HB71, I think) to add basicly the same stuff, minus the 250 population cap and 15 breeding pairs part. Either way, it looks like they might actually take some effective steps to control the damn things.
I also just read that Idaho is "mulling the idea of hiring independant trappers to cut down numbers in 3 (and possibly 6 total) areas where the elk herds are really suffering.
It's time for all of us to get vocal and get these proposals passed! And you out-of-state boys... Start planning your hunts now!
I like things that go "bang"... I love things that go "BOOM!"
