Public Access Expanded In Southwest Montana
The largest wildlife management area in Montana is now 160 acres larger thanks to a joint effort by a conservation-minded landowner, Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks (FWP), and the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation.

“We appreciate Edna Schmeller, a RMEF life member and long-time supporter of our mission, for bringing this conservation project to our attention.” said Kyle Weaver, RMEF president and CEO. “This land has been in her ‘family for nearly three decades. Now it is permanently protected and opened to public access for everyone to use and enjoy.” The property is about 10 miles south of Anaconda at the base of the Anaconda-Pintlar Mountains.

Previously surrounded on two sides by the 56,000-acre Mount Haggin Wildlife Management Area (WMA), it is now part of the WMA itself.
