Obtaining An Archery Elk Hunting License

We highly recommend that all hunters read the new 2022 regulations from Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks using the following link before applying for licenses this year:

 

Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parts 2022 Hunting Regulations

 

 

Please apply as a party of two for a non-resident "Elk Combination-General" license with the Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks (MFWP).

 

At the same time that you apply for the “Elk Combination-General” license also apply for an elk permit and make sure to apply for permit number 411-21 as your first and only choice. A $10.00 bow and arrow license or archery stamp must also be purchased at the time of license application.

 

Please contact MFWP to verify application cost and licensing procedures at (406) 444-2950.

 

The 2022 MFWP deadline for license application is April 1st.

 

The results of the license drawings are projected to be available online at the MFWP website by the April 15th.

Increasing Your Odds of Drawing a License or Permit

Bonus Points

 

Bonus points essentially offer you additional drawing chances and are used for first-choice drawings only. Every year that you are unsuccessful in the drawing, and you participate in the bonus points system, you will be awarded a point. When you apply in the draw your accrued points are squared to increase the odds for the applicants with more accrued points. All base bonus points accumulate over time until you draw a permit.

You can only earn 1 bonus point per license year for a specific special permit or license. 

The options are:

  1. At the time of application for that species permit or license
  2. Between July 1 and September 30 if you did not apply for that species special permit or license

 

Reminders:

 

Preference Points

 

Preference points are used for nonresident combination licenses and increase the likelihood of obtaining a Combination license. In a preference point system, licenses are awarded to applicants with the greatest number of preference points.

Purchasing Preference Points:

Preference points for a nonresident big game, elk or deer combination license may be purchased for a non-refundable fee of $100.

Preference points can be purchased:

Any accumulated preference points are lost if the applicant does not apply for a non-resident combination license in consecutive years, or if you are successful at obtaining a combination license.
