Hunters planning to pursue wild turkeys in parts of western Montana this fall must apply for a special permit by July 26.
Prospective fall turkey hunters interested in these permits may apply by mail using an official application; at a regional office, or online.
Fall turkey hunting is by special permit in five portions of western and southwestern Montana. Other areas have a general license turkey season. For details, check the 2012 upland game bird hunting regulations on the FWP website at fwp.mt.gov on the Hunting page under Regulations.
All turkey hunting permits in Region 1 are sold over-the-counter. There are no drawings required for permits in Region 1.
