Privatizing wildlife

Elk in the crosshairs, though not necessarily the crosshairs of rifle scopes aimed by your average Joe Montana hunter. A new governor and FWP Fish and Wildlife Commission are making it easier for landowners to get elk tags to hunt their own property, but are also making it harder for the public to get access to the same large herds that congregate where public hunting isn't allowed.

For FWP, managing elk/landowner conflicts just got more difficult as well.

As usual, nice reporting by Brett French at the Billings Gazette.
