There's no wait for nonresidents still hoping to purchase a license to hunt deer and elk in Montana this fall.

A number of first-come first-served surplus licenses, good for antlered deer and elk in most hunting districts, can be purchased online or over-the-counter at any Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks office.

Nonresident surplus hunting licenses available include: Montana’s big game combination license for $971, the elk combination license for $821, and the deer combo for $575. Montana’s nonresident combination hunting licenses allow one to hunt for deer and/or elk and include season conservation, fishing, and upland game bird licenses; and the hunting-access enhancement fee.

Montana's big game archery season runs Sept. 6 – Oct. 19; and the general rifle big game seasons run Oct. 25 – Nov. 30, for a combined 11 weeks of hunting like none other in the West.

Deer and elk are found throughout most of Montana. Hunters enjoy nearly 35 million acres of National Forest and other public land, as well as about 8 million acres of land made available through the Block Management Program. Hunters must follow all regulations and obtain permission to hunt on private property.
