Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks has announced that a limited number of surplus elk permits and antelope and deer "B" licenses will go on sale September 2.
The licenses will be sold first-come, first-served by mail only from the agency's Helena headquarters through September 18. After September 18, remaining licenses will be sold first-come, first-served in the regions for which the licenses are valid. Hunters who drew an antelope or deer "B" license, or elk permit, through FWP's 1998 special drawings cannot purchase a similar surplus license.
Resident applications for surplus licenses, which include a list of hunting districts where licenses remain, are available at most license agents and all FWP offices. Nonresident applicants, which also include a list of districts for which licenses and permits remain, are available from any FWP office.
All applications received before September 2 will be considered as having been received on the 2nd.
