Attention reservation ranchers and rural residents!!!

As spring time gets underway and calving season continues, bear activity has begun to increase. Please contact BFWD (406-338-7207) or Dispatch (406-338-4000) immediately if you have suffered depredation losses. Time is of the essence when comes to investigating grizzly, wolf, or mountain lion kills. The evidence collected during these investigations provide justification for livestock-loss reimbursement programs. 

Ranchers, farmers, and rural residents are also advised that Wildlife Services/APHIS has a cost-share program for electric fencing projects to protect livestock.  Please contact Charley Tailfeathers at (406) 845-9041 or Blackfeet Fish & Wildlife at (406) 338-7207.

P.S. Please properly store dog food, livestock feed, and all other attractants.

Thank you!!!

New for the 2024 season, the Blackfeet Fish and Wildlife Department will be offering 5 Mule Deer Hunts through an online auction for Non-Tribal  Members. Read More.
