Elk NetworkMontana Approves RMEF Project, Expands Public Access

Conservation | May 20, 2020

The Mount Haggin Wildlife Management Area (WMA) is now 244 acres larger for hunters, hikers and others to enjoy. The Montana State Board of Land Commissioners recently approved the addition, a purchase brokered by the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation.

“It’s another excellent project in the Anaconda area,” said Mark Lambrecht, RMEF director of government affairs, told the Independent Record.

The WMA covers 58,000 acres and is southwest of Anaconda in western Montana. The property improves access to the east side of Grassy Mountain.

The landowners approached RMEF several years ago.

According to the Independent Record, Montana Governor Steve Bullock called the project a “really valuable acquisition.”
