Public meetings to review deer hunting regulations in NW Montana (posted 1/3/19)
FWP seeking public input about potential management strategies
Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks
Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks (FWP) is hosting four public meetings to discuss deer populations and potential future management strategies for hunting seasons in northwest Montana. FWP Region 1 staff are hoping to engage the public in an open discussion about the future direction for deer hunting after back-to-back harsh winters impacted fawn recruitment and a low hunter harvest this fall.

The meetings are not formal public hearings and will feature informational presentations on historical and current white-tailed and mule deer populations followed by discussion.

"We are hoping to engage the public and talk about the current state of deer herds across northwest Montana," said Neil Anderson, FWP Region 1 wildlife manager.

"We have heard some concerns from sportsmen about deer populations. These meetings will help FWP collaborate with the public and better understand their needs and expectations."

The first meeting will be held Jan. 9, 2018 at the FWP Region 1 headquarters in Kalispell, 490 N. Meridian. The meeting will start at 7 p.m. and will be in conjunction with a regular meeting of Flathead Wildlife, Inc., a local sportsmens group.

Additional meetings will be held in Trout Creek, Libby and Eureka.

Deer populations have historically followed up and down cycles depending on several factors, including the severity of winter. Management actions have traditionally attempted to respond to these cyclical changes and sportsmen’s concerns.

For more information, contact FWP Region 1 Information and Education Program Manager Dillon Tabish at (406) 751-4564.

FWP seeks public comment on three fisheries projects (posted 12/18/18)
Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks
Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks is seeking public comment on three fisheries items: the Statewide Fisheries Management Program and Guide, the Madison River and Varney Bridge Fishing Access Site temporary closure rule and Fishing Access Site/Wildlife Management Area Rule.

Statewide Fisheries Management Program and Guide
The Statewide Fisheries Management and Guide provides a framework for how programs within the fisheries division function and outlines how fisheries are managed across Montana.

The guide contains two parts: The first summarizes specific programs within the division and how those programs support fisheries activities; the second is organized by drainage and provides an overview of fisheries priorities and challenges within each drainage and outlines priorities for primary waterbodies within drainages. The guide is intended to inform fishing-regulation-setting during the four-year review and to serve as a reference to the angling and recreational public.

"This guide is a resource for anglers and others who want to know about how FWP programs help to ensure a great experience on Montana’s waters," said FWP fisheries division administrator Eileen Ryce. "It will also outline what our challenges are to maintain and enhance those experience for the future."

This document was previously known as the Statewide Fisheries Management Plan and was developed in 2013. The name was changed because the plan was not prescriptive in nature and doesn’t replace waterbody-specific management plans. The current guide will be in place from 2019-2027.

The Madison River and Varney Bridge FAS Temporary Closure Rule
The Montana Department of Transportation is replacing the Varney Bridge over the Madison River on Secondary 249, with work proposed to begin April 2019. MDT will require the contractor to provide safe public float passage between in-stream construction related obstructions and hazards. MDT officials have said they anticipate times when construction activities will create unsafe conditions for the public and will necessitate temporary closure the river and FAS.
Closures will be considered in the interest of public safety and if there are no other reasonable alternatives available. FWP and other regulatory and recreational interests will be informed of any closures at least 48 hours before the closure. The maximum time allowed for each instance of work requiring a temporary river closure is 48 hours.

FAS/WMA Commercial Fee Rule
This biennial rule sets the fee schedule for commercial use on Fishing Access Sites and Wildlife Management Areas. Typical uses covered by this rule include fishing guides and outfitters, other water-based service providers, watercraft livery, concessions and photography. The proposed fee rule proposes no increases in any fees over those currently in effect.

Public comment will be accepted on all three items until 5 p.m. on Jan. 13, 2019. Comments can be submitted online at http://fwp.mt.gov, choose News then Recent Public Notices or mail to Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks; Attn: Fisheries Division; P.O. Box 200701; Helena, MT 59620.

Rare Caribou sightings reported in Northwest Montana (posted 11/5/18)
Montana FWP working with wildlife biologists in British Columbia
Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks
Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks regional staff have received reports of a rare sight in northwest Montana.

Residents have recently documented sightings of woodland caribou near the U.S.-Canada border. The multiple sightings include the potential for a bull and a cow in separate locations.

Caribou, members of the deer family, are native to northwest Montana but have almost completely disappeared from the contiguous United States over the last half century.

Woodland caribou herds once stretched from central British Columbia to Idaho, Montana and Washington. The decline in population is largely attributed to high mortality linked to habitat fragmentation, alteration, loss of old growth forest, and subsequent predation impacts. Woodland caribou are now protected in the United States and British Columbia.

Caribou have been known to roam from the Selkirk and Purcell mountain ranges in southern B.C into Montana, Idaho and Washington but the occurrences have become increasingly rare.

Caribou are similar in size to mule deer but have different coloration, large round hooves and unique antlers. Even cow caribou can have visible small antlers.

"There are three weeks left of big-game hunting season in Montana. Hunters are reminded to be sure of their target and beyond," said Neil Anderson, FWP Region 1 wildlife manager.

After confirming reports of the recent sightings, Montana FWP contacted wildlife biologists in British Columbia and informed them of the sightings. FWP will continue to work closely with partners in British Columbia on the conservation of the species.


Charming Libby, Montana
Charming Libby, Montana
Libby, Most Charming Small Town in Montana (posted 8/14/18)
According to Reader's Digest
Reader’s Digest posted a story under the Travel section of their website on "The Most Charming Small Town in Every State." Libby was selected as the Most Charming Small Town for Montana. "You’ll find the heart of America in these small-town gems lost in time. Add them to your must-visit list now," said author Lyn Mettler.

"Set in view of the Cabinet Mountain Range and yet another part of Montana’s fantastic outdoors, Libby, which is located on the northwest side of the state, Libby is surrounded by lakes, fishing, hiking trails, camping, and endless scenic drives. For a local’s experience, get a taste of Montana on tap at Cabinet Mountain Brewing Company and enjoy a meal at The Black Board Bistro with a locally-sourced seasonal menu."

https://www.rd.com/advice/travel/most-charming-small-towns-in-every-state/


Libby lies in the northwest corner of Montana and is nestled in a valley carved by the Kootenai River on the flank of the majestic Cabinet Mountain Range and Wilderness Area. Today about 2,800 people live within Libby proper. The main industries are lumber and wood products, mining, tourism and recreation. The movies "The River Wild" and "Always" were filmed here. Contact the Libby Chamber of Commerce for brochures, info on lodging and events, general area information, and contact information for local businesses and services.

SUMMER
When the weather warms and the mountain snows melt away, the Kootenai National Forest comes alive with over 2.2 million acres of public land as a playground. Mountain trails and lakes open up, beautiful wildflowers come in bloom, and wildlife have their young. Libby is the basecamp for the Cabinet Mountains Wilderness Area, 90-mile long Lake Koocanusa, the Northwest Peaks Scenic Area, and the Ten Lakes Scenic Area. There is good access to most of the Forest and plenty of room to get away from it all!

WINTER
Winter in Montana means snow, and lots of it! For those who love to play in the deep powder, the Libby area offers tremendous winter fun. Turner Mountain Ski Area, located just 22 miles from Libby, offers challenging downhill skiing with a beautiful view. Their slogan is "steep, deep and cheap", and Turner definitely lives up to that. It's still fairly undiscovered, so you can escape the crowds and get the cheapest lift tickets around. For those who love snowmobiling, there are hundreds of miles of backcountry roads to sled on in the Kootenai National Forest. Cross-country skiers and ice fishermen also can find solitude on a lake and miles of quiet forest trails to enjoy the outdoors. Those who are a bit on the wild and crazy side will love the antics of the Libby Polar Bear Club. Members take winter-time "swims" in frigid Libby Creek every Sunday from October to April. Plungers have ranged in age from 3 to 61. As long as the ice can be broken on the creek, if it has formed, the group will take their plunge, no matter the temperature.
