Poll Question

The use of descending devices to safely release your catch has shown they significantly reduce the discard mortality of fish caught from deep water. Reducing discard mortality in both the commercial and recreational sector will translate to more abundant populations and additional access opportunities for anglers. Do you support the use of descending devices while reef fishing to safely release your catch?

  • Yes. (60.00%)
  • I am unsure, as I do not know what those devices are. (20.00%)
  • No, I would only use such devices if the law requires me to. (20.00%)

Recently, two Montana state representatives have proposed more aggressive legislation addressing the state's gray wolf population. These bills range from the addition of a wolf tag into big game combination tags, to year-round sanctioned harvest without a license, use of snare traps, and private reimbursement of wolf harvest. Currently, the wolf population in Montana sits at 850 wolves, which is 700 over the state’s minimum recovery goal of 150 wolves. Which of the below options for wolf management do you support?
