Some MT BMA’s Open for Spring Turkey Seasons

Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks and participating land owners will open some Block Management Areas (BMAs) for spring turkey hunting along the Milk River and one area south of Zortman.

Twelve areas will be open for the spring turkey season, beginning April 8, and running through May 21. Most of the properties are located along the Milk River between Hinsdale and Nashua. One additional property is located just south of Zortman in Goslin Flats, which is a portion of the Square Butte BMA.

“The BMA spring turkey hunt worked well for both landowners and hunters the last few years, and landowners are looking forward to opening their property again this spring,” said Tim Potter, Jr., Region 6 FWP Hunting Access Coordinator. “We are very pleased that we are able to provide this opportunity again. Just remember that many of these properties are in the middle of calving and other farming activities during the spring. Please be cautious and respectful around these properties as well with other landowners not in the program.”  For more detail log on to:http://links.govdelivery.com/http://fwp.mt.gov/regions/r6/
