FWP commission scales back elk management changes

New elk regs were approved by the FWP commission Friday, but this report by Tom Kuglin of the "Helena Independent Record" indicates some of the proposals least favorable to in-state hunters were scaled back.

Spokespersons for both the United Property Owners of Montana and the Montana Outfitters and Guides Association were unhappy with some of the changes — especially dropping unlimited archery elk permits in many hunting districts. That suggests the commission adopted regs more favorable to private, in-state hunters. That's almost always a good thing.
