I was lucky enough to draw a MT mountain lion tag! I paid the $5 to apply and $20 for the bonus point, but I haven't bought/paid for the license. How, when, and where do I get the license? Can I get it now or should I wait? Is there a window of time to purchase it before I'd forfeit it? Thanks much for the help!

Maybe the dnr could help you out

You need to go into the FWP now and purchase the license. I gather you drew a tag in Region 1 or 2. If you have any questions feel free to get ahold of me.

What he said... where at?

I think the deadline to purchase your tag is @ Feb. You should be able to go online at purchase it on the FWP website. It would be under the applications tab I think.

Good luck on your hunt. I'd be interested in knowing where you drew as well.

One thing to keep in mind is some of those draw units now have a male subquota that once filled, only allow you to shoot a female even though you have a limited tag. Hopefully, you have a flexible schedule and can hunt some of the early snows.


A little something from that country to get your excitement level up. :)

It's NNW of Missoula a bit. My buddy's bro-in-law lives out there and has dogs. He loves to take newbies like me out there. I called the licensing folks at FWP in MT and they set me straight- I should have started there as Bou suggested. However, I knew there would be plenty of you who knew the scoop here! Thanks guys!

Here is my cat from 2 years ago in the cabinets. If you need a guide I can make recommendations. Lots of good cats across the state. Congrats on the tag!!!

While I wouldn't stake my hunt on some of the information given on this site.... it sure is always fun to ask.... trust... but verify... =D

Good luck with your tag and your hunt.

When are the quotas typically filled by?
