Applying for a permit
A permit cannot be issued without a person agreeing to the Affirmation on the following page. Be sure to read the Conditions for the Salvage and Possession of Vehicle Killed Wildlife thoroughly and completely before going on to the permit application page. It constitutes a legal document similar to that which is signed when a person buys a hunting or fishing license. A law enforcement officer may require inspection of the animal, parts, meat and may request the permittee take the officer to the physical site where the animal was picked up.
Be sure to fill out the application fully. The system will not allow you to print a permit that does not have complete information.
Once the application has been made, go to the “PRINT PERMIT” box and click. When the permit is printed, be sure to keep it as it is the legal document that allows possession of the salvaged animal.

The following information is also included by MT FWP on their website with information on salvage permits. I would follow their direction until/unless you are told otherwise, though.
The salvage permit system is not designed to operate on mobile devices. Do NOT attempt to apply for a permit on any mobile device.
