New License, Passport Year Begins March 1


Fri Feb 28 00:00:00 MST 1997

Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks reminds hunters and anglers that all 1996 hunting and fishing licenses expire on February 28. To fish or pursue any game animals during scheduled seasons from March 1 through February 28, 1998, new 1997 licenses will be required.

FWP licensing officials emphasize that residents purchasing licenses must present a valid Montana driver's license or valid Montana identification card. Those purchasing licenses for immediate family members also must present the accepted photo I.D. of the person for whom the license is purchased. For youngsters 15 years of age and under, a Hunter Education Certificate of Completion is acceptable.

The 1997 State Park Passports, which will permit recreationists unlimited access to all state parks where user fees are charged, are now available at all FWP offices and larger FWP license agents.
