FWP Drawing Results Delayed
By angelamontana

Message from Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks:

Sorry for the unfortunate news, but drawing results will be delayed a week.

Undoubtedly, everyone is eager to learn results of the drawing for mule deer buck and either sex and special antlerless elk permits; however, the results will not be available for another week. The drawing will now happen the week of April 23.

Reasons behind the delay are:

• Licensing folks are still reconciling data from applications.
• FWP still needs to run a mock drawing to ensure the system is operating smoothly. This will happen toward the end of this week.
• The agency wants to run the drawing at a time when staff is available to answer questions from the public about the drawing or the new MyFWP portal.
• It is critical for FWP to do everything in its power to have a mistake-free drawing, and this extra time will allow for that.

FWP thanks you for your patience as these issues are addressed with the goal of having a smooth drawing process. Best of luck in drawing your desired permits!
