Montana's Furbearers                                             Wildlife Management

Fur animals have long influenced human culture and survival. Native Americans utilized furbearing animals for meat and the insulating qualities of their pelts as protection from the cold Montana winters. Hunting and trapping were the primary ways that humans provided food, clothing and shelter. This heritage and the tradition of hunting, as old as humans themselves, is still strong today.

 

Fur Trade History                                                        Kid's Korner

The fur trade was one of the earliest and most important industries in North America. The fur trading industry played a major role in the development of the United States and Canada for more than 300 years. Want to learn more about wildlife and the furbearers?
