HELENA, Mont. (AP) -- Montana officials want to make salvaging roadkill for the dinner table as easy as a mouse click.

State officials plan to let drivers who accidentally kill big game to print out permits at home that allow them to harvest the meat for food.

Later on, there will be an app for that, too.

State lawmakers earlier this year passed the bill allowing motorists to salvage the carcasses of deer, elk, moose and antelope struck by vehicles. They left it to the state Fish, Wildlife and Parks agency to sort out how to issue roadkill permits.

Wildlife commissioners approved regulations Thursday that allow people to go online for the permits. Spokesman Ron Aasheim says there are plans in the works for a smartphone application for permits, as well
