New deadline and drawing dates for Montana hunters
Important pre-season timeline update for hunters
by Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks
January 27, 2012

Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks wants to alert all hunters to important updates to the 2012 preseason calendar, especially new deadline and drawing dates. The biggest change this year is the deadline for residents and nonresidents to apply for deer and elk permits now March 15. This date was moved up to allow hunters more time to prepare for hunts. Drawings for those permits will now occur in mid-April as opposed to July.

At the February 16 FWP Commission meeting, quotas will be finalized for hunting districts with pending quotas.
