FWP will crisscross the state to talk about bison with groups and communities. Topics will include whether or not it makes sense to have a wild, free-ranging population somewhere in Montana, and can a population of wild bison actually exist and be managed like wild deer, elk, or antelope.

Bison have strong romantic and emotional ties to Western history. As the state agency responsible for Montana’s wildlife, FWP needs to explore all alternatives for bison management with you.

Presentations and discussions on the future of bison in Montana will be accommodated on request.
