BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - Wildlife officials are placing restrictions on elk hunting north of the Yellowstone National Park border near Gardiner for the next two years.

The Billings Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/1oweEj2 ) that the Fish and Wildlife Commission’s approved rules that will allow a brow-tine bull harvest with a general tag during the archery season and the first three weeks of the rifle season. The final two weeks of the rifle season would be open to mature bull hunting for permit holders. Only 50 permits will be issued.

The goal of the Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks recommendation is to count 10 or more brow-tined bulls per 100 cows for two consecutive years within Hunting District 313 near Gardiner. The last time that count was made was in 2002.
