Ok, friends, Hunting season is upon us here in Montana. With archery season in full-swing and rifle season coming up next, I thought this would be a good time to remind everyone of the laws surrounding hunting in Montana.
Many hunters - both seasoned and rookie - get themselves into predicaments without even intending to do so. The FWP regulations can be confusing and even those who have spent significant time reading the regulations may have a hard time fully understanding the nuances of the FWP laws.
Top Mistakes Made In The Field:
These are just the most common mistakes made in the field. Make sure you understand all the regulations and the changes that are made yearly. The most recent FWP regulations can be found here: http://fwp.mt.gov/hunting/regulations/. If you aren’t sure if you are breaking a rule or have broken a rule, do your research or call someone for help. Better to be safe than sorry - especially when it comes to losing your hunting/fishing privileges for years moving forward.
Good luck, have fun, and be safe. And if you find yourself in a bind, call an attorney.
