Montana’s fall hunting season officially gets underway Monday, Aug. 15 with the opening of the special archery 900 antelope season in many Montana hunting districts.
To hunt antelope with a bow and arrow in a special August archery season, sportsmen need to have drawn a special 900-series tag and bought a bow-and-arrow license.
Bow-and-arrow licenses are available at all Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks offices and from license providers. To purchase a bow-and-arrow license, hunters must show that they either have held a bow and arrow license in the past or passed a bow-hunter education class before Aug. 1.
Anyone hunting without the proper licenses and tags may be cited, and could be fined or jailed and lose their hunting privileges.
The general archery season for antelope begins Sept. 3.
Hunting regulations, and lists of season opening and closing dates are available at license dealers and FWP offices and online at fwp.mt.gov.
