Nonresident hunters can choose among Montana deer, elk and big game combination hunting licenses to purchase online or over-the-counter at any Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks office.

The surplus licenses, good for antlered deer and elk in most hunting districts, can be used statewide during the general hunting season.

First-come, first-served nonresident surplus hunting licenses now available include: Montana’s big game combination license for $971, the elk combination license for $821, and the deer combo for $575. Montana’s nonresident combination hunting licenses allow one to hunt for deer and/or elk and include season conservation, fishing, and upland game bird licenses; and the hunting-access enhancement fee.

The archery season runs Sept. 6—Oct. 19. The general big game season runs Oct. 25—Nov. 30.

Deer and elk are found throughout most of Montana. Hunters enjoy nearly 35 million acres of National Forest and other public land, as well as 8 million acres of land made available through the Block Management Program. Hunters must follow all regulations and obtain permission to hunt on private property.
