Applications for Montana's special limited-entry mountain lion license drawing are due Aug. 14.

Mountain lion hunters can either choose to apply for a special license that's valid only in certain hunting districts available through the drawing—or they may purchase a general mountain lion license by Aug. 31. Hunters can't do both.

Mountain lion hunting in most of Montana's northwestern and western hunting districts in FWP Regions 1 and 2 is only by special mountain lion licenses awarded via the drawing.

All mountain lion limited-entry license applicants must have a 2014 Conservation License and ALS number and they must pay a $5 nonrefundable application fee.

Mountain lion hunters can apply for a special license by 5 p.m. Aug. 14 at any regional Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks office or visit the FWP website at and then click "Buy a License". Online applications must be submitted by 11:30 p.m. on Aug. 14.

Those who prefer to apply by mail can go to the FWP website on the Hunting page and click Licenses and Permits for a mail-in paper form. Mail-in applications must be received by 5 p.m. on Aug. 14. Mail-in applications must be sent to: Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks; License Section; P.O. Box 8009; Helena MT 59620-8009.
