New License, Passport Year Begins March 1


Fri Feb 18 00:00:00 MST 2000

Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks reminds hunters and anglers that all 1999 hunting and fishing licenses expire on February 29. To fish or pursue any game animals during scheduled 2000 seasons from March 1 through February 28, 2001, new 2000 licenses will be required.

FWP licensing officials emphasize that residents purchasing licenses must present a valid Montana drivers license or valid Montana Identification card and their Social Security number. Those purchasing licenses for immediate family members also must present the accepted photo I.D. and Social Security number of the person for whom the license is purchased. For youngsters, ages 12 to 17, a Hunter Education Certification of Completion and Social Security number is needed.

The 2000 State Park Passport will permit daily entry to all designated state parks. New licenses and park passports will be available at all FWP offices and FWP license agents during the last week of February.
