A bill allowing hunting with spears was considered my the MT legislature this session. The following was in the Billings paper this AM.
Dear Ed: I am really bummed to see that the bill allowing the use of spears for hunting big game in Montana appears to be going nowhere this legislative session. So Im wondering, what are the regulations for the slingshot? Bill Cheatham
Dear B.C.: Slingshots have not been approved for general hunting in Montana, but they may be used for the taking of giant Philistines. These creatures are present only in a handful of block management areas a bit southwest of Brockway and may be hunted between Sept. 3 and Oct. 5. For details, call the Department of Fish, Wildlife and Parks. Tell them I sent you.
