CSKT Tribe is committed to preserving the beauty and ecological integrity of their CSKT Tribal lands, including developed and primitive sites, for generations to come. To this end, it has become necessary to increase conservation permit fees across all resident categories. The revenue generated from this increase will be used to employ additional game wardens and outdoor recreation staff, who will work diligently to maintain the land and uphold our tribal regulations
Effective March 1, 2022 through February 28, 2023, the new fee structure is as follows:
- Camping Stamp 18 and Older: $100 for all categories of residents. A camping license is not required while camping with a member spouse or parent.
- Residents of the Reservation: Annual Conservation License $40, Disabled License $37.
- Non-Residents of the Reservation: Annual Conservation License for both age categories $100, 3-Day Conservation License $80, 3-Day Combined Conservation/Fishing License $105, Disabled License $100.
- Non-Residents of the State of Montana: Annual Conservation License for both age categories $100, 3-Day Conservation License $80, 1-Day Combined Conservation/Fishing License $80, 3-Day Conservation/Fishing License $146, Disabled License $100.
Please note that fees for fishing, including Flathead Lake, have not changed, and there have been no fee increases for non-member bird hunting on the reservation.
The CS&KT Tribal Council has ordered that violators will be prosecuted under MCA:45-6-203 Criminal Trespass. Additionally, certain areas are closed for CS&KT member use only and may be accessed by accompanied immediate family members with a valid conservation permit in their possession.
For a complete list of regulations and closed areas, please refer to Part IV, Recreation Regulations, Section 2.C and Section 7.B.3. of our Hunting, Fishing, and Recreation Regulations for the 2022-2023 season.
If you have any questions regarding these regulations, please contact our Permit Agent, Amanda Bourdon, our Information & Education Program representative, Stephanie Gillin, our Fish & Game Tribal Warden Chief, Dan McClure, or our Division Manager, Whisper Camel-Means, at 883-2888. Thank you for your cooperation in preserving our precious tribal lands.
