The National Wild Turkey Federation has presented a $4,000 grant to FWP’s hunter access programs.
“Having the continued support of the NWTF only reinforces the importance of our access program to all hunters in Montana,” said Jason Kool, FWP access bureau chief.
The grant comes from the NWTF’s Hunting Heritage Super Fund and will be put toward FWP’s Block Management Program, which is a popular program that promotes access to private lands by paying landowners a fee per hunter day.
For the 2017 hunting season, about 850 block management areas, more than 1,300 cooperators and 7.3 million acres of private land are enrolled in the Block Management Program.
Hunters can look for the 2017 FWP Access Guide on Aug. 15. For more information, look online at fwp.mt.gov.
