RE: Carter County Coyote Predation Draft EA

RE: Carter County Coyote Predation Draft EA Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks (FWP) is proposing to provide Carter County and its County Predator Board with $26,400 to assist with their predator control efforts specific to coyotes during the spring of 2023. The proposed activity would allow the county to use the funds to temporarily increase aerial shooting of coyotes utilizing fixed-wing aircraft and trapping efforts to reduce the coyote population at a spatially finite scale, which would be timed around mule deer fawning dates with an intended result that could positively influence the mule deer population and fawn survival rates. A draft Environmental Assessment (EA) has been prepared and is available for comment. It can be viewed on the FWP website at: or is available upon request from the FWP Region 7 office, (406) 234-0900. Public comment is welcome and will be accepted until 5 p.m., April 8, 2023. Written comments can be mailed or emailed to: CC Coyote Predation Control EA Attn: Brett Dorak, Wildlife Manager P.O. Box 1630, Miles City, MT 59301 [email protected] If you have any questions regarding this project or EA, please contact Brett Dorak, Region 7 Wildlife Manager, at 406-234-0921 or the above email address.
