Shed antler hunters and other recreationists planning to visit a Montana Wildlife Management Area are reminded that while many open at noon on May 15, several do not open until June 1. 

Current regulations require all WMAs with winter closures to reopen at noon to help with consistency and public safety.

Springtime searching for shed antlers, hiking and other such activities are not allowed through the Block Management Program, but instead require permission from the private landowner. Block Management only covers public hunting and typically is only in effect during fall hunting seasons.
