Montana: Hunting Included in Management Plan for Lee Metcalf National Wildlife Refuge

Thursday, April 19, 2012

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) is currently allowing the public to comment on a recent plan to manage the Lee Metcalf Refuge for the next 15 years.  Located south of Missoula, this 2,800-acre refuge is one of the smallest refuges in the country and is one of the few remaining undeveloped areas in the Bitterroot Valley.  The Lee Metcalf Refuge is open to archery hunting for deer, which is one of the fish and wildlife related recreational opportunities available.

Please take a moment to e-mail your comments in support of the hunt program.  Comments are being accepted until April 30 and can be e-mailed to leemetcalf@fws.gov.  Be sure to include “Lee Metcalf Draft CCP and EA” in the subject line of your message.
