ALERT: Montana changes 2020 deer/elk application deadline!

Montana deer elk application deadline change

New for 2020, Montana's application deadline has changed. Normally the application deadline for special draw deer/elk and nonresident combination licenses was March 15, but for the 2020 season, you now have an extra two weeks (17 days) to submit your application! The new application deadline is April 1.

This new application deadline impacts both residents and nonresidents.

In Summary 

  • 2020 special draw permit (deer and elk) application deadline = April 1
  • 2020 nonresident combination license (Big Game Combo, Elk Combo, Deer Combo) application deadline = April 1

Montana has also listed an approximate draw result date of April 20. So even with the application deadline pushed back, they will still have their draw results released when they typically announce them each year.
