If you plan on applying for hunting permits in Montana this year you need to know application dates have changed. Fish Wildlife and Parks has published a new list. The biggest change this year is the deadline for residents and nonresidents to apply for deer and elk permits – now March 15. At the February 16 FWP Commission meeting, quotas will be finalized for hunting districts with pending quotas. It is important that hunters interested in applying for special deer and elk permits in districts with pending quotas wait until after February 16 to make their choices and submit applications. FWP urges hunters to apply for licenses online. For more information, log onto fwp.mt.gov and click on “hunting.”
