The new rule amendment implements HB 585 passed during the 2009 legislative session to help promote the state's hunting heritage. It makes an additional 500 nonresident big game and 500 nonresident deer combination licenses available to former Montana residents with family members who reside in the state and hunt here. The license fee would be the same as similar nonresident combination licenses obtained through the annual drawing. Nonresident applicants for these licenses must be sponsored by a family member who must have a valid Montana hunting license and will also accompany them in the field for the hunt. If more applications are received for the license than there are licenses available, a drawing would be conducted to issue the licenses and any unsuccessful applicants would be placed in the appropriate general nonresident combination license drawing. The proposed deadline to apply for the license would be March 15, 2010. Comments are due Dec 4th. Send email to firstname.lastname@example.org , or via mail to: Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks, Licensing Division, PO Box 200701, Helena, MT 59620-0701. (Annual Rules - 11/13/2009)
