HUNTING -- The wait is over for nonresidents still hoping to purchase a license to hunt deer and elk in Montana.

A number of first-come first-served surplus licenses, good for antlered deer and elk in most hunting districts, can be purchased online or over-the-counter at any Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks office.

Nonresident surplus hunting licenses available include:

  • Montana’s big game combination license for $971,
  • Elk combination license for $821,
  • Deer combo for $575.

Montana’s nonresident combination hunting licenses allow one to hunt for deer and/or elk and include season conservation, fishing, and upland game bird licenses; and the hunting-access enhancement fee.

See Montana's  "2014 Nonresident Deer & Elk Combo Hunting Licenses."

Montana's big game archery season runs Sept. 6 – Oct. 19; and the general rifle big game seasons run Oct. 25 – Nov. 30, for a combined 11 weeks.

Deer and elk are found throughout most of Montana, where hunters enjoy nearly 35 million acres of National Forest and other public land, as well as about 8 million acres of land made available through the Block Management Program.
