Commission to Reconsider Montana Bison Hunt

Helena, MT – Montana's proposed bison hunt may not happen. The state's wildlife commission yesterday agreed to consider canceling the controversial hunt, which was set to start next week. The 4-1 decision was made by a commission that included three members just appointed by new Montana Governor Brian Schweitzer. Schweitzer said earlier this week that he wanted the hunt cancelled. The wildlife commission also voted to postpone the drawing for licenses for the bison hunt which was scheduled for today. The commission plans to meet Monday, to make a final decision.
