In anticipation of the new license year, which opens March 1, Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks posted regulations for Dear/Elk/Antelope and Moose/Sheep/Goat online at fwp.mt.gov/hunt. The deadline to apply for deer and elk permits is April 1.
Please verify your application prior to submission, as changes after submission will not be permitted. Permits will be printed and mailed to hunters after the drawing.
When making license purchases online, please remember that licenses and carcass tags may be printed from your home printer on 8.5x11-inch paper, if you elect the print at home option.
If the print-at-home option is selected, customers will receive an email at the conclusion of their online transaction that includes a weblink to print their licenses and tags. The link is valid for five days. Please be certain that your printer is functional prior to clicking the link in the email.
Otherwise, customers may elect to have FWP print and mail their licenses and tags. License and permit purchases requiring a decal/clip will be mailed within 10 days of purchase or successfully drawing the license.
License replacements/reprints are $5 each. The first replacement can be done at any license provider; subsequent replacements must be done at an FWP office.
