Block management information available

For the 2016 hunting season, 1,262 landowners have enrolled about 7.3 million acres in Montana’s Block Management Program.
The Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks program provides hunters with public hunting access to private and isolated public land, free of charge, while assisting landowners in managing hunting activities.
FWP publishes one statewide Block Management Hunting Access Guide that includes information for all seven FWP administrative regions.
Beginning Aug. 15, the Hunting Access Guide and all BMA maps will be available on the FWP website at Hunting Access Guides and regional BMA maps can be also obtained in person from regional offices (Regions 6 and 7 provide maps only from the website or on-site at the BMA) beginning Aug. 15.
Aug. 22 is the earliest date reservations can be accepted for those BMAs that require reservations. While many BMA’s do not require reservations, some do. Hunters can use the Hunting Access Guide to determine how permission is obtained for specific BMAs.
Additional tools to help hunters plan for hunts on Montana’s 93 million acres of private and public land can be found on line at Click “Hunting,” then view options under “Hunter Access.”
