Big Game Research Studies

The Blackfeet Fish & Wildlife Department is conducting two (2) separate big game studies on the reservation.   Daniel Bird, University of Montana - Doctoral student, is conducting an elk study that will shed light on the migratory patterns, habitat usage, elk calving areas, and the effect high impermeable fencing is having upon elk movements.   BFWD is working cooperatively with Glacier National Park, Montana Fish Wildlife & Parks, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and other partners on this important elk research.   In addition, Landon Magee, University of Montana - Graduate student, will be conducting a moose study on the reservation utilizing remote cameras.   These cameras are code-locked to prevent theft and any photos of humans will be blurred to maintain privacy.   Please do not disturb these cameras, as they will provide important information on moose recruitment, moose migratory patterns, and habitat usage.




FISHING UPDATE (7/13/22):  The majority of reservation lakes are accessible and fishing is good.  Mission Lake = fishing good, producing large trout; Four Horn Lake = road improved to gravel in 2021, fishing slow, but producing trophy-sized rainbows.  the road to Goose Lake is passable; weedy but producing nice chunky cutthroat.
