Although the program has been around for decades, recent changes to public hunting access agreements that provide free either-sex elk tags to landowners has grown this year. In exchange for the free tag, landowners allow three public hunters, one of which they get to choose. Some hunters see the tags as commercialization of wildlife and question Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks’ oversight of the program. These tags are issued above and beyond what are awarded to public hunters.
