Weather shuts down two check stations, slows traffic at third
November 13, 2020
Severe winter weather shut down two out of three big game check stations in southeastern Montana on Sunday, the last day of antelope rifle season. Poor visibility and icy road conditions prompted FWP to cancel biological check stations at Hysham and Mosby.
A check station was held at Ashland on Sunday, but the adverse weather greatly reduced hunter traffic.
“The weather was very nice on Saturday, with temperatures reaching the 70s, but Sunday brought rain, freezing rain and snow in the morning with cold and wind, creating a blustery day,” said Wildlife Biologist Ryan DeVore.
