MONTANA NEWS: Special Deer Hunt Scheduled for Marias River State Park

The Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks Commission has approved a limited-access deer hunt at the new Marias River State Park and Wildlife Management Area southwest of Shelby.

Hunters have until Aug. 7 to apply online or by mail.

Applications are available at all FWP regional offices or via the FWP Web site at

There will be an archery season from Sept. 5 through Oct. 18; and a rifle season from Oct. 25 through Nov. 15. During any given week, only 10 hunters will be allowed in the park and wildlife management area.

Wildlife biologist Gary Olson says area residents, at meetings last winter, stated their preference for a limit on the number of hunters using the new property.
