"Access and Animals: Complexity, Contradictions and Cultural Changes"

A Public Forum

Thursday, May 13, 8am – 4pm

Montana’s hunting heritage is broad and deep. Our varied and plentiful game attracts tremendous attention both in and out of state. Over the last several years, important questions have arisen about access to Montana’s game animals as changes have occurred in licensing structures, game management strategies, patterns of land ownership, attitudes about hunting and the economic value of game animals.

To facilitate discussion on these topics, the Burton K. Wheeler Center at MSU has organized a day-long forum on Thursday, May 13 in Helena at the Holiday Inn Downtown. The conference is designed for any Montanan with an interest or stake in this issue: state game managers and biologists, hunters, outfitters, ranchers, realtors, land and animal conservation organizations, educators, extension agents, elected officials and other decision makers in this arena. To see the program and to register, go to http://www.montana.edu/wheeler. Please also call us at 994-0336 with questions. The deadline for registering is May 7.

The Wheeler Center is a non-partisan, privately funded public policy center at Montana State University. Our mission is to gather Montanans together to discuss critical state issues in a frank and open educational forum. All Wheeler events are designed for and open to the general public

So there will be broad representation at the conference, we encourage you to send this invitation to all those on your email lists. Thanks very much; we look forward to seeing you in Helena.
