People are all abuzz with NM and waiting for the results to show up there. I'm definitely in the "can't wait to find out" group there too. I'm also wondering about MT-- when will they post results? I think the official date is the 15th of April, isn't it? If yes, given that date is on Sunday, when will those results likely be available?

From: SBH

Sometime the week of the 16th is what I'm guessing but who knows with those goofballs. Good luck to ya Scott!

They actually have a good table of dates, but list only the application guide on their site even tho it includes draw result dates too.

Deer, Elk and Antelope permits will be drawn sometime next week. Not sure what days, but that is what I was told today when I called MFWP.

I need some luck in the Montana draw. 4 bonus points going in. Sure MT has their act together this year. Last year’s draw was a fiasco.

The MT FWP phone number (406-444-2950) has an automatic message that says the drawing for all deer and elk licenses and tags will start on Monday 4/23 and finish on Wednesday 4/25.

From: Hoyt59

Ditto what Elk just said. I Just got off the phone with the licensing department and she told me they decided to move it back to the week of the 23rd for non residents to ensure they "get it right" this year. :-)

Pulled this from the link BigDan shared:

Sorry for the unfortunate news, but drawing results will be delayed a week. Undoubtedly, everyone is eager to learn results of the drawing for mule deer buck and either sex and special antlerless elk permits; however, the results will not be available for another week. The drawing will now happen the week of April 23.

Reasons behind the delay are:

• Licensing folks are still reconciling data from applications. • FWP still needs to run a mock drawing to ensure the system is operating smoothly. This will happen toward the end of this week. • The agency wants to run the drawing at a time when staff is available to answer questions from the public about the drawing or the new MyFWP portal. • It is critical for FWP to do everything in its power to have a mistake-free drawing, and this extra time will allow for that.

FWP thanks you for your patience as these issues are addressed with the goal of having a smooth drawing process. Best of luck in drawing your desired permits!

What takes a month to run these apps through a computer program? It seems to me like they could hit run and have everything complete within a day. They have had a month and haven't gotten around to testing the system yet and now need more time?

Patience! Patience! Who said I was patient???

Better this than having my son's results changed 4 times.

Looks like the drawing is taking place. Went to check my status and got the following message. " Warning: The drawing is in process. Your results will be shown after the drawing is complete"

In Manitoba our results get mailed to us in July/August lol. Season starts roughly 25th of August. Montana is treating you right ;)

Got the combo but nothing else. Still looks like some fun.

This was my first time applying for MT so I'm not certain but I think that you have to draw the combo license before being drawn for a special (limited entry) permit. I didn't draw the combo so I couldn't draw the permit. I think the combo license was previously undersubscribed.

From: SBH
24-Apr-18
So is the general combo license sold out for non res? I thought it was almost a guarantee in the past? Maybe I misunderstood that.

From: Mossyhorn

Got an elk combo. First time applying in MT. Anyone know when Montana posts the draw odds so we can see what the tag vs applicant numbers were this year?

From: 137buck
24-Apr-18
SBH, I believe they have a set amount of NR licenses. They haven't sold them out for quite sometime, but last year and this year they did.

How come I can’t draw the bear paws with 3 bonus. WTH over?!?

From: Timbrhuntr

Just went to buy my Montana turkey tags at just over a 100 bucks each and the clerk said hey you get them for 57 bucks now did you apply for a big game tag because you must have got it ! Woo hoo!

From: Bigdan
24-Apr-18
Tony your still 15 years out same odds as a ram tag for a NR

25-Apr-18
15 years ain’t so bad..... if your 12.

There are a number of Elk combo licenses left over that will go on sale next week The elk deer combo has sold out

From: JL
25-Apr-18
I didn't see any news releases talking leftover numbers. I'm wondering how many NR folks put in for the NR big game combo?

From: Bigdan
25-Apr-18
I called them today most guys put in for the elk deer combo they did not give me a number that were left. If you apply for a limited tag and don't tell them you will except the general license. Your odds are better if you apply and get the elk only combo

From: Boreal

First year I'm not successful drawing a big game combo. Hopefully I'll get my elk combo when they open up.

From: Chief 419

I finally drew this year. I had four bonus points for Unit 410 going in and purchased the preference point for the first time this year. The draw seemed to be much more organized this year. Last year was a mess.
