The National Deer Association (NDA) strongly encourages our members and supporters, and especially those who live and/or hunt in Montana, to attend an upcoming public meeting and comment on the proposed regulations. Conserving deer and protecting hunting requires participation in the rooms where wildlife policy and legislation are formed, and this comment opportunity provides the occasion for just that.
