Emergency Contact Information

Blackfeet Game Wardens will patrol the hunt area and assist in the enforcement of all applicable hunting and hunter laws. Wardens will also respond to bison hunt emergencies. Hunters may also contact the Gallatin County Sheriff’s Dispatch (West Yellowstone area) or the Park County Sheriff’s Dispatch (Gardiner Area) in the event of an emergency.

Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks will not direct hunters to the location of bison in the field or assist with the field dressing and retrieval of bison.  Game wardens from other Tribes may be able to assist you in this regard and can often be found in the Beatty Gulch area.
