Hopeful hunters have until June 1 to submit applications to Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks for antelope licenses, deer B licenses, and special elk and deer permits that are annually awarded through special drawings.

Hunters who want to pursue antlered mule deer bucks in 20 hunting districts in southwestern Montana also need to apply for the first time for a special permit by June 1. All other hunting districts within the former Southwestern-8 hunting area once requiring license validations are open to any hunter with a general Deer A license.

Hunters who receive a special permit for taking an antlered mule deer buck-whether in the hunting districts in southwestern Montana or anywhere else in the state-are restricted to taking a mule deer buck in the location specified on the permit and can not hunt mule deer bucks anywhere else in the state.

Special permits, issued only through the annual special drawing, will be required to hunt mule deer bucks during both archery and rifle seasons in the following southwestern Montana hunting districts:
