Confederated Salish Kootenai Tribes

Off-Reservation Bison Hunt

Welcome to the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes’
Off-Reservation Bison Hunt Web-Based Orientation.
We encourage you to read the materials on every page
of this website and watch the Orientation Videos and the Powerpoint.

Remember, this is a Treaty Hunt. Bad choices made by you or another individual in your group can jeopardize our Tribes’ treaty rights and those of other tribes as well. So it is crucial that you hunt in an ethical way and abide by all Tribal, state and federal regulations governing hunting, camping, and any other activities you are engaged in. As you go through the materials on this website, if you find material you want to print a hard copy of to refer to later, just click on the printer icon () at the bottom of each page.
