ICE: JAMS CAN ENDANGER LIVES, DAMAGE PROPERTY SUS,WITED At the Glendive Block Management Appreciation Dinner, the winner of the Henry Golden Boy, .22 LR donated by the Badland Bruisers Mule Deer Foundation chapter of Glendive, was Don Steinbeisser Sr. of Sidney. Block Management Program enjoys Successful year The Block Management Program, which provides public hunting access to more than two million acres of land throughout Region 7, is still going strong. To thank the people who make that possible, Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks invited more than 300 landown- ers and their families who participate in the program to two appreciation dinners in mid-February - one in Miles City and one in Glendive. The Miles City event drew 187 people, and 100 participated in Glendive. The Colstrip Sportsman's Club, a supporter of the Block Management cooperator event for more than 20 years, donated prizes tbr participants. ' For the Mule Deer Foundations, the Black Gold Chapter of Baker and the Badlands Bruisers chapter of Glendtve both donated Henry Golden Boy .22 long rifles for raffles at each dinner Block Management by the numbers Region 7 Hunting Access Coordina- tor Travis Muscha summarized for attendees how the Block Management Program has fared in recent seasons. "It's been a pretty stable program here for the past five years," lVIuscha said. "Obviously, we'd like to see this Wending upward with more coop- erators and more Block Management Areas." For the 2018 season, there were 319 cooperators and 262 Block Manage- ment Areas. The total acreage was 2,195,247 million --' 1,612,499 of those private and 582,748 state and federal acres. Region 7 is the largest Block Management Program in the state, ac- counting for a good chunk of the total 7.2 million enrolled acres. The amount of acreage has dropped slightly in recent years, but Muscha was pleased to see an additional 15,300 acres in 2018. A WHOLE LOT OF HUNTERS Southeastern Montana played host to 43,532 hunters in 2018 just through Block Management. Of those, 27,425 were Montana residents and 16,107 were non-residents. An additional 2,000 non-residents visited last year com- pared to 2017. Overall, hunters are spending more time afield in Region 7. Since 2014, hunter days have increased by almost 14,000. In 2018, 78,413 hunter days were recorded. Residents accounted for ~0,184 days and non-residents spent 28,229 days. Based on a little over 3,000 comment cards returned from hunters in 2018, 73 percent or" hunters observed game and 28 percent harvested anhnals. Break- ing it down, success rates were 34 per- cent for antelope, 22 percent for deer, 3 percent for elk, 29 percent tbr upland birds and 63 percent for watertbwl.
