    LICENSE REPLACEMENTS

    Faded hunting and fishing licenses can be replaced for free

    Hunters and anglers with licenses that are displaying faded text making them difficult to read can have those licenses replaced at no cost at their regional Fish, Wildlife & Parks office. Another option is to login to MyFWP and request a digital version of your license to print at home or download to a smart phone. Digital licenses are good for everything but a carcass tag.

    CLEAN. DRAIN. DRY.

    Stop at watercraft inspections stations

    Watercraft inspection stations are Montana’s first line of defense to prevent the movement of aquatic invasive species. Boat owners should ensure their watercraft and trailers are clean, drained and dry before transporting and need to be aware of Montana’s inspection rules.

    • All watercraft coming into Montana from out of state must be inspected prior to launching.
    • All watercraft traveling west across the Continental Divide into the Columbia River Basin must be inspected prior to launching.
    • All watercraft launching anywhere within the Flathead Basin that were last launched on waters outside of the Flathead Basin must be inspected.
    • Anyone transporting watercraft must stop at all open watercraft inspection stations they encounter.
