Big game hunting permits & licenses
April 6, 2007

Applying for special big game hunting permits and licenses is a lot easier these days for the increasing numbers of hunters who use the Internet instead of laboring over a paper application.

Resident and nonresident hunters can apply for special permits and licenses simply by going to the FWP web site at fwp.mt.gov and using FWP's Online Services.

The deadlines to apply for FWPs special drawings are May 1 for moose, bighorn sheep and mountain goat; and June 1 for elk, deer and antelope.

Internet applicants receive instant confirmation that their application is accepted and accurate, and they are able to immediately print a receipt for their records.
Hunters benefit because FWPs Internet application wont be accepted until the applicant correctly enters all of the information. This feature protects hunters from being excluded from a special drawing because their application was incomplete or contained errors.

The only application error that cant be detected over the Internet is if the hunter accidentally enters a valid hunting district but not the one intended. To avoid this error, applicants are encouraged to carefully choose and verify the hunting district numbers they desire before and after entering them on the application. Once the application has been submitted, it cannot be changed.
For those who dont own a computer, Internet access is available at Montanas 80 public libraries and 30 branch public libraries.

FWPs special drawing applications for all big game species are available online on the FWP home page at fwp.mt.gov under Online Services. Applicants will need a MasterCard or Visa credit card. A convenience fee of $1.25, plus two percent of the total purchase, will be added to the purchase price.

Additional information about FWP's SuperTag lottery and how you can purchase $5 chances is also available online on FWPs SuperTag web page. The SuperTag deadline for entering chances to win a moose, sheep and goat SuperTag is July 5, and for deer and elk it is Aug. 2.
