Hunters advised of optimal hours for checking harvested animals at Libby Area Office
by Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks
January 9, 2020

Hunters and trappers in the Libby area are reminded of the optimal days to check harvested animals.

Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks will have staff available to check mountain lions, wolves, bobcats, and other animals at the Libby Area Office, 385 Fish Hatchery Road, on Sundays, Mondays, and Thursdays from 8:30 a.m. 4:30 p.m. through Jan. 19. After Jan. 19, FWP staff will be available on Mondays and Thursdays (excluding holidays).

FWP cannot guarantee staff will be readily available to check animals outside of those hours.

Hunters can call to schedule a time outside of the designated hours:
Tonya Chilton-Radandt: (406) 293-4161 x 209
Kim Annis: (406) 293-4161 x 207
Tamie Laverdure: (406) 291-1954

Inspection of bobcat, fisher, otter, swift fox, and marten harvests can now be completed within 10 days of the calendar close of the season.

Black bear, mountain lion, or wolf must be presented to a Montana FWP official within 10 days of harvest for inspection, tagging and possible removal of a tooth (for aging). A hunter who has completed a transfer form may have a representative present the hide and skull to a Montana FWP official for inspection.
