The Confederated Salish & Kootenai Tribes announce the continuation of the 2018-19 Off Reservation Wild Bison Hunt Orientations. Each hunter is required to attend an orientation with the Division of Fish, Wildlife, Recreation and Conservation to be issued a bison hunt permit and report card.
The two October dates are scheduled for October 8th and 22nd. All orientations will take place at the Tribal Council Chambers and begin at noon and 6 pm, please show up early to sign-in. The Tribal Council Chambers are located in Pablo at the Tribal Complex off Highway 93.
Contact Amanda Bourdon, Tribal Permit Agent, at 675-2700 ext. 7200 to register for an orientation. After completing the orientation, your Off Reservation Wild Bison Hunt Bison Permit and Report Card will be available.
Please register early as space is limited. To prepare for this bison hunt and other off Reservation hunts bring your updated tribal identification and any unfilled permits and report card to the orientation.
This bison tag does not guarantee that you will successfully harvest a bison. Like other hunts, the availability of bison during the hunt period will depend on weather, migratory patterns of bison and other factors.
For further information on the bison hunt orientation contact Germaine White, Information & Education Program Manager at 675-2700 ext. 7299 or Tom McDonald at ext. 7299.
