The Montana State Library and Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks have partnered to provide easy-to-access information to help hunters have a safe and successful hunting season. The Hunting Companion can be found at http://msl.mt.gov/hunting.
The Hunting Companion is a streamlined access point for the basic information every hunter needs for a successful hunt. The site was launched in response to librarians reporting an increased need from their patrons for assistance in finding relevant hunting information online.
“As librarians, our goal is to help people find the information they need easily and quickly,” said Jennie Stapp, Montana State Librarian. “By sifting through all of the information that is available from many different sources, we are able to locate the best resources that provide accurate, reliable and easy-to-use information so that people can move forward with what they’re doing, whether that’s hunting, fishing, or something else entirely.”
The Hunting Companion is designed to provide answers to four questions that hunters ask, including:
What can I hunt?
When can I hunt?
Where can I hunt? and
How do I hunt?
The Hunting Companion site has an easy-to-use interface and simplistic design and provides information from resources ranging from Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks, the Montana GIS community, and the Montana State Library. Since the site launched in 2010, it has been one of the State Library’s most popular resources throughout the hunting season.
