Special Update from the Field December 20, 2004
HELP SAVE TEN BEAUTIFUL BUFFALO BY APPLYING FOR A PERMIT TO HUNT THEM...
AND THEN, DON'T USE IT.

Dear Buffalo Friends,

APPLY NOW: https://app.discoveringmontana.com/elicensesales/

On December 16, 2004, Montana Fish, Wildlife, and Parks (FWP) approved a buffalo "hunt" that would permit gun-bearers to kill ten buffalo in the Eagle Creek Special Management Area.  This is national forest land that lies directly adjacent to the northern boundary of Yellowstone National Park, and until last Thursday, it was the only place in Montana where buffalo were allowed to be.  Now, as they enter this former place of peace, they will be subject to gunfire from January 15 through February 15, 2005.

WE ARE STRONGLY URGING YOU TO APPLY FOR A BUFFALO HUNT PERMIT! https://app.discoveringmontana.com/elicensesales/
Applications must be received by 7:00 p.m. EST, Monday, January 3, 2005.
This is a lottery hunt permit. It costs just $3.00 (non-refundable) to put your name in. There will be ten permits issued, with only one being an out-of-state permit. If your name is drawn, Montana residents pay $75, and nonresidents $750. If it isn't, there's no further obligation. It's an insultingly cheap price for taking an insultingly cheap shot at a most sacred animal. Applicants must have a valid 2004 Montana Conservation license, which can be easily obtained at any hunting license outlet for $6.25. The drawing is scheduled for January 7, and if you're a winner, FWP will notify you by phone. For all the details on the buffalo shoot visit http://fwp.state.mt.us/news/article_3245.aspx.

TAKE AN ON LINE POLL: Montana's Helena Independent Record is taking an on line poll on FWP's decision to allow this canned buffalo hunt. Help show Montana that there's another "black eye" coming to the state if they let this buffalo shoot happen. Their question is: "Do you agree with the FWP Commission's decision to permit bison hunting?" Vote "NO" by scrolling down the page at http://www.helenair.com/ and please pass the link on to your friends!

For more information on why this buffalo shoot is a bad idea, please visit http://www.buffalofieldcampaign.org where you will find the latest news articles, background information, and tips for writing letters to the editor of the print media. Contact us with any questions or comments.

For the Buffalo,
All of us at Buffalo Field Campaign
