MSU Hunting Access Project - Reserving Hunting Access at the MSU College of Agriculture Springhill Experimental Farm
The Gallatin Valley Chapter of Pheasants Forever has partnered with Montana State University College of Agriculture and Region 3 Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks to coordinate an online hunting reservation system for big game and upland bird hunting on the Springhill Experimental Farm through the generosity of local software provider Schedulicity.com.
Read and follow the “Guide to the Online Reservation Process” after reviewing and signing a copy of the “MSU Springhill Experimental Farm rules and acceptance statement”. The “Guide” contains the link to the Schedulicity hunting access site. The ‘acceptance statement’ gives driving directions to the Farm and other necessary information. A printable location map is also provided on this site.
While basic upland bird habitat is presently available on the Farm, we plan to work with MSU in improving the diversity and quality of cover types needed by upland game birds in the coming years.
Your cooperation in following the established rules and in using common sense and good (fair chase) hunting ethics when on the MSU property is necessary to help keep this land open to controlled public hunting. Have a fun and safe hunt!!
