A People of Vision...
The Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes are comprised of the Bitterroot Salish, the Pend d’Oreille and the Kootenai tribes. The Flathead Reservation of 1.317 million acres in northwest Montana is our home now but our ancestors lived in the territory now known as western Montana, parts of Idaho, British Columbia and Wyoming. This aboriginal territory exceeded 20 million acres at the time of the 1855 Hellgate Treaty.

Tribal Wildlife Management Program and Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks Requesting Public Input on Pheasant and Gray Partridge Management
Hunting for pheasants on the Flathead Indian Reservation is a regular highly-anticipated activity for many people and has been so for decades.  The habitat on the Reservation, especially in the Mission Valley, provides an excellent outdoor experience.  In recent years though, pheasant numbers have been declining in most areas of the Reservation.  Weather conditions, especially cold damp springs, decreases in habitat quality and quantity, land-use changes and predation can have adverse impacts upon pheasant populations.  With recent declines in pheasant populations, Tribal and Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks wildlife managers are soliciting the public’s thoughts and suggestions as to how to deal with the decline in pheasant numbers.  Wildlife managers will use a survey to reach out to the public and assist them planning for management  options for pheasants.  Hunters, bird watchers and other interested individuals are urged to provide their input by completing a 2014 Flathead Indian Reservation Pheasant Hunter Survey.  Please provide comments and suggestions by October 30, 2014.  Your participation is appreciated.

Tribal Wildlife Management Program Seeking Public Input on Wolf Management on the Flathead Indian Reservation
The Tribal Wildlife Management Program is initiating a process to update the Tribes’ Northern Gray Wolf Management Plan for the Flathead Indian Reservation, which was approved by the Tribal Council in 2011.  While the plan has worked well in addressing wolf depredation upon domestic livestock, some needs for modification to adapt the plan to an increasing wolf population on the Reservation and adjacent areas.  As a result, the Tribal Wildlife Management Program is seeking input from the public in an attempt to thoroughly address relevant wolf management issues. Please provide comments and suggestions by October 30, 2014.  Your participation is appreciated.
