“We anticipate increased local recreation this year and encourage local residents to get their permit and stamps early, said Tom McDonald, Manager of the Division of Fish, Wildlife, Recreation and Conservation.

McDonald invites all bird hunters, anglers, recreationists to the Tribes’ Division of Fish, Wildlife, Recreation and Conservation office at 406 6th Avenue East in Polson to obtain their license and regulation booklet for the 2013-2014 permit season.
