Well last night at midnight we all expired in our sleep. Yup our Montana hunting/fishing licenses are all used up. It is time to get new ones. We did get an extra day with leap day, did you use it ? I had to work so I wasted mine. A few changes this year AGAIN. No warm water permit, and no Hunting enhancement fee. But a new required license, it is a BASE HUNTING LICENSE, AKA $10 fee. BUT you have to have it to hunt. State use is still included . I got everything But archery and fur bearers and it was $108. The wolf tags don't come out till Aug and you cant buy a paddle fish tag over the counter. This year you have to put in for a paddle fish harvest permit due in by March 31st. If you Don't draw you get a catch and release tag , but that's the only way you can fish for them... Your state use does not work till you get a new license , be careful out shooting your probably on state land. You have to keep your old license till end of wolf season if your hunting wolf , can it get anymore confusing ??? Then there is your "bull trout" permit... Anyway just a heads up get your paper work ASAP and look it over before "Wendy" has her hand out asking for your new license .
