Fish, Wildlife and Parks set January meeting dates in north central Montana to discuss the tentative hunting regulations for the next two years.

The tentative rules and regulations were approved by the Fish and Wildlife Commission earlier this month, and include statewide and regional regulations for antelope, black bear, bighorn sheep, bison, deer, elk, moose, mountain goat, mountain lion and upland game birds.

Among FWP Region 4 recommendations for the 2018 and 2019 seasons are adding a regional white-tailed deer B license, increasing mule deer B licenses in several hunting districts and making the dates and licenses of the Region 4 elk shoulder seasons more uniform.

The Fish and Wildlife Commission will consider public comments before making final decisions at its February meeting in Helena.

The FWP Region 4 meetings start at 7 p.m.:

• Stanford – Jan. 9, Judith Basin County Courthouse meeting room, 91 Third St. N.

• Lewistown – Jan. 17, Lewistown Sheriff’s Complex, 121 Eighth Ave. S.
