LICENSE INFORMATION

Remember Montana deer and elk applications are due to Cody Carr’s Hunting Adventures no later than March 1st, and we will hand deliver applications and license money made out to Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks in the form of a cashiers check by the March 15 deadline. This will insure we have enough time to thoroughly go through applications and correct any mistakes. If applying online please send confirmation of successful application by March 1st. Remember to apply as a party. If booked a year in advance buy a bonus point over the summer the year before scheduled hunt. Also remember to apply as Party if more than one person in your group.


Even though licenses are a draw, Montana has had 100% draw odds the last three years in a row on Big game combination licenses and we expect drawing odds to remain 100% success on these licenses.  If you have any questions about licenses please call (406)444-2535 and enter zero.  They will be able to walk you through any circumstances you may encounter.  Remember license fees are not included in hunt cost.

MOUNTAIN LION LICENSING QUESTIONS


Mountain Lion hunting is now by special permit in our area and also by over the counter quota. Permits must be applied for by August 14. You can begin applying for your permit by July 1st on the Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks online licensing system.  Apply in successive years and each bonus point gives you one extra chance to draw a license. You may obtain one bonus point each year you apply for a permit and make sure to buy the bonus point. Bonus points begin at zero again once you draw a Mountain Lion permit. You will be notified in late September if you have drawn a permit. If successful, you will need to schedule your hunt with us and purchase your Mountain Lion license.

You will purchase a $10 conservation license, a $5 dollar permit fee, and a $20 bonus point fee.

Once you draw your license you will then buy the $320 mountain lion license.

If you do not draw a permit and you want to go that year call us and see if we have availability on the quota hunts.  Quota hunts are over the counter licenses and are open from February 1st until April 14 unless quota fills in that district.
