Once again Montanans, and nonresidents, have shown they are willing to buy special licenses to hunt deer after the regular season, even if the animals may be infected with a deadly disease. Tags went on sale the day after Christmas for a special chronic wasting disease hunt in the Chester area. Again, the either-sex tags were snapped up in no time – about five minutes. Out of the 60 either-sex tags offered, 11 went to nonresidents. Out of the 275 doe tags for sale, 34 were purchased by nonresidents. Those tags took only about 3.5 hours to sell out. The hunt starts on Jan. 6. Details from Montana’s first CWD hunt, which started on Dec. 15 in Carbon County, show that so far 117 mule deer and 55 whitetails have been shot for a total harvest of 172. The hunt will end when 200 of each species are taken, or by Feb. 15, whichever comes first.
