A new state law offers nonresident youths—12-15 years of age—a substantial discount on an upland game bird hunting license.

Nonresident youths can now purchase an upland game bird license for $35. The cost last year was $110. The new nonresident youth upland game bird hunting license also includes the privilege to hunt migratory birds.  The nonresident youngsters will also need two Montana-licensing perquisites, which includes a $10 nonresident conservation license and a $10 hunting-access enhancement fee.

Montana youths have a longstanding upland game bird hunting license price break.  Resident youths 12-14 years of age receive the license free upon the successful completion of their hunter education requirements and with the purchase of an $8 conservation license.  Resident youths 15 years of age pay only $3 for their upland game bird license.

The licenses can be purchased from most FWP license providers or online at fwp.mt.us. Click "Buy a License."
