Thousands of non-resident hunters come to Montana every year to hunt and fish, bringing big money to our state and the outfitting business. Some Montanans, however, feel that the outfitting industry is costing them hunting and fishing opportunities. _The debate has resulted in Initiative 161, a petition circulating across the state trying to eliminate outfitter-sponsored non-residential big game hunting licenses. Petition organizers say that they are trying to open up more land for Montana hunters. Kurt Kephart, the sponsor of Initiative 161, noted, "Here in Montana, hunting and fishing are family values and they're also a long-time family tradition and we'd like to keep it that way."
