ALERT! New data released to the public by the Interagency Grizzly Bear Study Team (IGBST) now reveals that grizzly mortality in the GYE is significantly higher than our statement yesterday indicated. On September 4th, the data indicated 35 known or probable mortalities: a number nearly 70% higher than the same date in 2017. However, given yesterday's unexpected addition of four more bears – for a total of 39 – the percentage is now 86% higher than today’s date last year.

MONTANA - Public commenting is open on Northern Continental Divide Grizzly Bear Population Rules. See link at the bottom to officially comment.
For grizzly bears to be taken off the threatened species list states must have safeguards to prevent grizzlies from going back on the list. Therefore, this rule demonstrates FWP's commitment to conserving grizzly bears.
The rule outlines that FWP will maintain at least 800 grizzly bears in the Primary Conservation Area (PCA) and Zone 1 (see map). There will be strict mortality limits for grizzlies in the PCA and Zone 1 to prevent the grizzly population from coming close or below to the 800 grizzly bear mark.
Zone 2 and Zone 3 currently has no explicit population objectives and no mortality limits (see map). Zone 2 is expected to be a connectivity area where grizzlies from the North will connect to the Yellowstone Population. Zone 3 is recognized as not a connectivity area as there is no major ecosystem for grizzlies to disperse to. Additionally, Zone 3 is considered marginal grizzly bear habitat due to agriculture dominating the landscape. Population objectives for Zone 2 and 3 would likely occur after de-listing through a state level public process. The first step towards defining population objectives for Zone 2 and 3 is de-listing grizzly bears.
The best place to submit public comments is on the FWP website at:
There will also be public meetings on the prairie to discuss these population rules:
On September 18, 2018, at 6:30 p.m. at Heritage Hall at Great Falls College-MSU, 2100 16th Avenue S., Great Falls.
On September 19, 2018, at 6:30 p.m. at Conrad High School, 308 South Illinois, Conrad.

I have never been in favor of bear hunts. Why? Because there are far too many hunting amateurs who wouldn't be able to tell the difference between a large cinnamon black bear and a grizzly bear. I also wouldn't trust hunters to remember to check for any cubs in the area before they fired a shot. The planned hunt expressly prohibits the killing of a grizzly sow with cubs. Quite often, though, bear cubs are out exploring and are not close to their mothers. So, I think that the grizzly bear hunt could very well result in an increased number of female grizzly sows being mistakeningly shot and killed. And without having female grizzlies to reproduce, that could very well negatively affect and decrease the grizzly bear population for years to come. I'm ecstatic that MT isn't going to have a grizzly bear hunt this year. At least, it will give our state a chance to see how well the hunt goes in ID and WY before it OK's a hunt here.
BTW, I just read that Glacier has made some campground changes due to the increased level of grizzly bear activity. Looks like several grizzlies have been spotted moving from the mountains in NW Montana down to the prairie areas to the east. Just thought you might like to know. Lastly, I want to applaud Tom Mangelson, one of Wyoming's top wildlife photographers, for his opposition to the trophy grizzly bear hunt. He had one of the top winning lottery tickets for the trophy hunt and paid $600 for his hunting permit. But he's going to shoot a bear with his camera and NOT with a gun.....WAY TO GO, TOM!!
