Ducks Unlimited to auction off rare moose permit
News from Ducks Unlimited
HELENA – Anyone wanting to hunt a Montana Shiras moose state-wide in 2018 will need to participate in a special auction this spring. On March 2, the Helena Ducks Unlimited chapter, on behalf of Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks (MFWP), will auction a Montana Shiras moose license at its yearly banquet.
Auction proceeds go towards moose research and habitat conservation in Montana. Participants may bid for the permit in-person or over the phone.
Steve Christian, an organizer of the event said, “This is the only Shiras moose permit offered via auction for use in the 2018 hunting season. The winner can hunt in any of the moose districts in the state, with or without an outfitter. Last year’s winning bid of $30,000 provided much needed funding for MFWP’s moose research projects.”
