Helena, MT - Landowners interested in raising and releasing ring-necked pheasants this year through the state Upland Game Bird Enhancement Program have until May 15 to submit an application.

Under Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks' Upland Game Bird Release Program, landowners who attempt to establish pheasant populations in suitable habitat can be reimbursed for raising and releasing pheasants. Landowners can apply if the land in the project area remains open to reasonable public hunting. Projects must comprise at least 100 contiguous acres of land and contain a combination of the habitat components- including cover and food-that upland game birds need to survive.

Projects on private and public lands submitted in partnership with youth organizations, 4-H clubs, sports groups, or other associations that can guarantee the completion of all project requirements are eligible too.

Hunting preserves, lands that host a commercial hunting enterprise, and lands where hunting rights are leased or paid for are not eligible.

Applicants must apply by mail to FWP in Helena. Approved pheasant releases will occur Aug. 1-Sept. 15.

For more information, and an on-line application form, visit FWP's website at "Upland Game Bird Program," or contact Debbie Hohler at: 406- 444-5674, or by e-mail:
