Hunters will have plenty of new choices this summer when it comes to purchasing over-the-counter hunting licenses. The choices include:

* The A9 (resident)/ B12 (nonresident) antlerless elk license, intended to control elk numbers, is available in certain hunting districts and is in addition to the elk that may be harvested with a general elk license.

* The deer B license for an antlerless mule or whitetail deer in addition to the deer that may be harvested with a deer A license.

* The antelope doe/fawn 700-20 license available over-the-counter. Most other antelope licenses are awarded only through special drawings.

Deer B and A9/B12 elk licenses will be available in mid-July and antelope doe/fawn 700-20 licenses will be sold over-the-counter beginning in mid-August. The licenses are scheduled to go on sale after the FWP Commission sets the final quotas for these species in July and August.

The antelope license fees are $11 for residents and $50 for nonresidents. Information on other license prices and prerequisites is available in the 2004 regulations.
