On Aug. 12, hunters can buy over-the-counter and surplus B licenses (antlerless) for deer and elk. Also, on Aug. 12, surplus general antelope, antelope B and antelope archery 900 series licenses go on sale. The antelope archery 900 season opens Aug. 15. The 900 license allows bowhunters to hunt antelope from Aug. 15 to Nov. 10 in any hunting district starting with 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7.

Surplus licenses are those that remain after Montana’s recent special hunting license drawings. The remaining licenses are sold on a first-come-first-served basis.To view list of available licenses please click here surplus licenses.

These licenses and permits can be purchased online, over the counter or by downloading a paper application (the latter is not recommended due to first-come-first-served basis).

FWP offices open at 8 a.m. on Aug. 12; online sales will begin at 5 a.m. at fwp.mt.gov, and FWP license providers will also have access to the licenses. License providers are listed on the FWP website—click on Hunting and then click License Providers.
