Some elk hunting districts have more than 1 option for a permit—for instance, HD 631 offers 1 for archery only and 1 for general season only, while HD 380 offers 1 for archery and the general season. Some deer permits—like those offered in HDs 213—also are valid in more than 1 hunting district.
Note: You must list all 5 digits in a permit area on your application. Failure to list all 5 will result in an invalid permit choice.
NOTE: In Montana, a "party" simply means that a group of hunters are applying together for the chance to obtain hunting licenses or permits. It is strictly illegal to transfer any hunting license. Each individual in the application "party" must harvest his or her own game.
For paper applications: Make sure: (1) all party members are listed; (2) all party members apply for the same hunting districts, in the same order and include the same preference/bonus-point participation; (3) all party applications must be submitted in the same envelope; (4) if 1 party member makes an error, that application will be eliminated but the remaining will be processed.
For online applications: The party establisher must list all party members and provide the number to all members so each member can apply online for that party.
