Tribal Member Off Reservation Special Bison Hunt  (* on indefinite hold until further notice)

Blackfeet Nation Fish and Wildlife Department is offering a Special Off Reservation Bison Hunt for the 2019/2020 Season.  This Season will be from 11/22/2019 to 03/13/2020. 

Eighty bison (80) permits will be available on a first come, first serve basis and will be available Online or by calling the Fish and Wildlife Office at 406-338-2430. The cost of these special permits are $150 to offset the cost of having BFWD game wardens present during the hunt. After all permits are sold, the Blackfeet Nation will conduct a lottery drawing to determine the hunting periods for those hunters desiring to hunt Beatty Gulch.  Blackfeet tribal hunters who do not want to hunt under the constraints imposed at Beatty Gulch are free to hunt the other public lands available for bison hunting in the Gardiner and West Yellowstone areas.

Bison Permits will go on sale at midnight on 11/15/2019.  They may be purchased directly online or by calling the Game and Fish office at 406-338-3430
