  • More Than 88,000 Watercraft Inspected For Aquatic Invasive Species

    So far this year, FWP and its partners have inspected more than 86,000 watercraft for aquatic invasive species. Of those, 45 were mussel-fouled and more than 400 were found with aquatic weeds. FWP and partner agencies, which include tribes, counties and conservation districts, operate more than 17 road-side watercraft inspection stations across the state. To find a watercraft inspection station or to learn more, go to or call the FWP Aquatic Invasive Species Bureau at 406-444-2440. In the last few weeks, the following was detected: A ski boat recently purchased in Minnesota was intercepted with mussels at the Wibaux watercraft inspection station (operated by Garfield Conservation District). The boat was decontaminated, locked to the trailer and released to its final destination in Pend Oreille, Idaho. Idaho was notified to allow for follow-up. The Wibaux station intercepted a wakeboard boat that was recently purchased in Minnesota with mussels in the sea strainer. The boat was decontaminated, locked to the trailer and authorities at Lake Tahoe, its destination, were notified for follow-up. The Broadus inspection station (managed by the Powder River Conservation District) intercepted a recently purchased mussel fouled ski boat from Minnesota heading for Big Sky. Staff decontaminated the boat, locked it to the trailer and FWP staff followed up with the owner for a full decontamination. No Eurasian watermilfoil (EWM) has been found in Beaver Lake near Whitefish this season following three comprehensive surveys. Another follow-up survey will be conducted in October. As the boating season winds down, inspection stations will be closing. The St. Xavier and Sula stations are now closed. Other stations will be closing in the coming weeks.

We did not execute well on either side of the ball and we were still there to win it at the end,” Head Coach Ryan Nourse said. “We are going to learn from a tough loss and get back to work on the details on Monday.” How It Happened The Bulldogs were the first to strike, capping off a 76-yard drive with a 31-yard touchdown pass from redshirt sophomore Michael Palandri to freshman Eli Nourse. The Yotes answered with an explosive scoring drive that saw them go 75 yards in just under three minutes, tying the game seven. The Bulldog defense forced the Yotes to a quick three and out on their next drive and the Bulldog offense wasted no time again.

The third quarter started out strong for the Bulldog defense as redshirt senior Braden Smith recorded a key tackle for loss on third down to force the Yotes to punt. Despite some defensive success early in the third, the Bulldog offense failed to match the defensive level of play. The Yotes went on to add a field goal and a touchdown to take a 31-21 lead into the final frame. The Bulldogs opened the fourth quarter with a DJ Kirven touchdown rush that was set up with a 13 play, 82-yard possession that started late in the third quarter. With 13:37 left in the game, the Yotes ran off more than six minutes off the clock on the next drive. Despite their best efforts to find the end zone, the Yotes settled on a 43-yard field goal attempt that was missed. The two teams traded three and outs, leaving the Bulldogs to take control of the ball with 5:33 left in the game. The Bulldog offense kicked it into gear and drove down the field for another Nourse touchdown reception, leaving College of Idaho with just :57 in the game and trailing 35-31. College of Idaho made the most of their limited time, ending the game on a 25-yard touchdown pass to Schofield to win 37-35.

  • Bulldog Cross Country Hits The Ground Running

    UMW Sports Press Release GREAT FALLS, Mont. - The Montana Western Cross Country teams got the 2023 season underway this morning at the Frontier Conference Preview Meet.

  • Grizzly Bear Euthanized Near West Yellowstone Following Multiple Conflicts With People

    A grizzly bear with a history of conflict with people was euthanized Saturday after breaking into a house near West Yellowstone. Early Saturday morning, a homeowner reported a bear with a cub broke through a kitchen window of an occupied home and removed a container of dog food from inside the house. Later that evening, staff from Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks and local law enforcement captured the cub, and, with authorization from the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, shot the adult grizzly due to an immediate public safety threat from the bear’s food-conditioned behavior. The adult grizzly was a 10-year-old female that had been captured in 2017 for research purposes. Through genetic analysis and other identifying factors, the bear was confirmed to be involved in a fatal attack on a woman near West Yellowstone in July. The bear was also involved in an encounter in Idaho that injured a person near Henrys Lake State Park in 2020. While both incidents were assessed to be defensive responses by the bear, multiple efforts to trap and remove the bear were made after the fatal attack in July due to the incident’s proximity to residences, campgrounds and a high-use OHV trail system. These efforts were unsuccessful. The cub, a 46-pound male, is being held at FWP’s wildlife rehabilitation center in Helena while arrangements are made to transfer the cub to a zoo in the coming weeks. Be bear aware Montana is bear country. Grizzly bear populations continue to become denser and more widespread in Montana, increasing the likelihood that residents and recreationists will encounter them in more places each year. This time of year is when bears are active for longer periods as they consume more food in preparation for hibernation. This period overlaps with hunting season and other fall recreation activities. Avoiding conflicts with bears is easier than dealing with such conflicts. Here are some precautions to help residents, recreationists and people who work outdoors avoid negative bear encounters: Carry bear spray and be prepared to use it immediately. Make noise to alert bears to your presence and travel in groups. Stay away from animal carcasses, which often attract bears. Follow food storage orders from the applicable land management agency. Keep garbage, bird feeders, pet food and other attractants put away in a secure building. Keep garbage in a secure building until the day it is collected. Certified bear-resistant garbage containers are available in many areas. Never feed wildlife. Bears that become food conditioned lose their natural foraging behavior and pose threats to human safety. It is illegal to feed bears in Montana. People who hunt in places that have or may have grizzly bears—which includes areas of Montana west of Billings—should take special precautions: Carry bear spray and be prepared to use it immediately. Look for bear sign and be cautious around creeks and areas with limited visibility. Hunt with a group of people. Making localized noise can help alert bears to your presence. Be aware that elk calls and cover scents can attract bears. Bring the equipment and people needed to help field dress game and remove the meat from the kill site as soon as possible. If you need to leave part of the meat in the field during retrieval, hang it at least 10 feet off the ground and at least 150 yards from the gut pile. Leave it where it can be observed from a distance of at least 200 yards. Upon your return, observe the meat with binoculars. Make noise while approaching the meat. If it has been disturbed or if a bear is in the area, leave and call FWP. Grizzly bears in the lower 48 states are listed as threatened under the Endangered Species Act. Management authority for grizzlies rests with the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, working closely in Montana with FWP, the Forest Service, the National Park Service, the Bureau of Land Management, the U.S. Geological Survey, Wildlife Services, and Native American tribes. This collaboration happens through the Interagency Grizzly Bear Committee. For more information, resources and education events on bear safety, visit

It was not the cleanest game we could play, but we stayed the course, learned from mistakes and made it happen,” Head Coach Ryan Nourse commented. “We are impressed with how well our new players played; it bodes well for us as a team. We will need to improve over the next week and this win gives us a chance at it.” How It Happened Eastern Oregon moved the ball early on the Bulldogs in the first quarter, driving down the field and running seven minutes off the clock.

The Bulldogs wasted little time in the second quarter as quarterback Michael Palandri connected with receiver Jon Kirkley for the Bulldogs’ first touchdown of the season. Though unable to score, the Bulldog defense showed its veteran leadership as they continued to shut down the Mounties throughout the second quarter. Bryer Monson recorded his second sack of the game on fourth down to force the end of a five-minute EOU drive and head into the half on a positive note. Once settled in, Palandri and the Bulldog offense began to click. Palandri connected with redhisrt freshman Dylan Shipley on the first play of the second half for an 81-yard touchdown pass. The Bulldogs scored on the following possession after Palandri threaded the needle to freshman receiver Eli Nourse for his first career touchdown reception, stretching the lead to 24-0. Despite the deficit, the Mounties were able to string together a scoring drive to bring the score to 24-7 heading into the fourth quarter. Following an unsuccessful first drive of the fourth quarter for the Bulldogs, linebacker Braden Smith intercepted EOU’s Quincy Glasper on UMW’s 40-yard line, sparking the UMW offense and special teams. Palandri quickly connected with Kirkley in the back of the end zone for his second touchdown reception of the game. The following kickoff took a Bulldog bounce and was recovered by freshman Landon Charlton. Three plays later, redshirt freshman Jake Humphrey punched it in for the final Bulldog touchdown of the game. EOU capped off the scoring with an 18-yard touchdown pass from Glasper. Montana Western held the Mounties on their final drive, which featured Monson’s third sack of the game. The Bulldogs claimed victory by a score of 38-14. Notables • The Bulldogs amassed a total of 433 yards, with Palandri throwing for 329 yards.
