In the entire state of Montana there are only 72 field wardens. Wildlife needs your eyes and ears to report these serious and costly crimes. Since 1985, TIP-MONT received more than 13,540 reports of poaching and other crimes, resulting in 1,521 convictions. These convictions netted $810,500 in fines, $337,000 in restitution. Also, nearly $155,000 in rewards were paid to citizens who reported suspected poachers and other crimes. 

One-Time Registration Not Transferrable!

By Bob Walker, Editor

In the 1990s, Montana’s legislature revised the motor vehicle registration program for many vehicles. Those affected were OHVs which include off-highway motorcycles and ATVs (quadricycles), snowmobiles, motorcycles, trailers and others. This change allowed owners of those vehicles to purchase a one-time registration for the vehicle/s they own.

How to legally ride your OHV

It is the operator’s responsibility to know the laws, regulations, legal routes and restrictions! Operate OHV’s only on areas and trails designated as open to OHVs. Check with the land management agency where you ride for regulations, OHV opportunity maps, and travel maps and carry them with you! Keep registration documents for your OHV with the vehicle or on the operator.
