Some archery antelope hunters will be afield beginning Aug. 15.
These hunters hold a 900 series license to archery hunt antelope Aug. 15–Nov. 9 in any hunting district starting with 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7.
This either-sex antelope license had to be obtained through the drawing before June 2. Archers who secured this license can only hunt antelope with archery equipment for the entire fall hunting season.
FWP officials remind early-season archery hunters that they may be traveling through or hunting in areas with official fire restrictions. Hunters must follow all fire restriction advisories in effect in these areas. For details on current conditions, go to the Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks website atfwp.mt.gov.

As a reminder, antelope "archery-only" season runs Sept. 6–Oct. 10 and the general antelope hunting season will be open on Oct. 11–Nov. 9. The archery-only deer and elk seasons run Sept. 6–Oct. 19.
