KALISPELL — June 1 is the application deadline for deer B, elk B, and antelope licenses. Hunters should review the 2022 regulations for any possible changes.
Among the noteworthy changes in northwest Montana, the 199-20 either-sex white-tailed deer B license that’s only valid within the Libby Chronic Wasting Disease Management Zone in Lincoln County now has a quota of 2,000. In the past, hunters could buy this B license over the counter. In response to local input, wildlife managers requested the Montana Fish and Wildlife Commission limit the number of licenses. Hunters now must apply by June 1. Nonresidents are limited to no more than 10 percent of the available 199-20 B licenses.
Antlerless elk opportunities in Region 1 are also now available as limited B licenses in certain hunting districts.
