Deadline for access tax credit program extended until May 1

Landowners will now have until May 1 to submit applications to Montana Fish, Wildlife, & Parks for enrollment in the Unlocking Public Lands Program. Through this program, landowners who agree to allow access, for a majority of the year (at least 6 months and 1 day), are entitled to receive a $750 annual tax credit per contract. Landowners may have a maximum of four contracts per year or up to $3,000 in tax credits. Public recreational access across private land to reach a parcel of otherwise inaccessible state (DNRC) or federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) or United States Forest Service (USFS) land can be limited to foot traffic only. 

More information about the program, including enrollment criteria and the application form, can be found at http://fwp.mt.gov/hunting/hunterAccess/unlockingPublicLands/.
