FWP Collecting Wings from Harvested Upland Game Birds

Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks will be collecting wings from hunter-harvested sage-grouse, mountain grouse, and Hungarian partridge across southern portions of Region 3 this fall/winter. Biologists will use the wings to identify birds by species and age class—juvenile or adult. This helps biologists monitor upland game bird populations.

Hunters: If you pass a wing collection barrel while traveling from a hunt, please put one wing from each harvested bird into the barrel. Wings can also be turned into area wildlife biologists or game wardens.  (more…)
