Hunting permit deadline is March 15

Print Article

Fish, Wildlife and Parks reminds hunters that the deadline to apply for bull and antlerless elk and mule deer buck permits is March 15. The application is available at FWP license providers and online at fwp.mt.gov.

The deer and elk permit application packet explains the rules for each hunting district and gives directions for applying. Hunters can apply online or apply in person at the FWP Office on North Meridian Road.

All elk B licenses previously offered in Region One are now “antlerless elk permits.” Hunters who wish to hunt antlerless elk in Region One must apply by March 15. Applicants must hold a general elk license in order to apply. Hunters who receive an elk permit must use it with a current general elk license. An elk permit does not allow the hunter to take a second elk. There will be no antlerless elk B licenses available in Region 1 during the June 1 deadline.

Prerequisites for applying for these permits include a conservation license, base hunting license and elk and/or deer license. Also, applicants for Archery Season only permits must purchase a bow and arrow license prior to submitting an application.

The Region One special deer buck permits are available in Hunting Districts 109-50 and 130-50. Limited numbers of elk permits are available in a number of Region One Hunting Districts.

For more information, call FWP Region One at 752-5501
