Outlined below is the pertinent information regarding the 2018 General Big Game (elk and deer) Combination License.

The Application

To hunt in the great state of Montana, you must apply for the General Big Game Combination license through the general draw. The price is $1,001.00 per applicant (plus an online convenience fee). This application and fee is due to the state by March 15, 2018. The application is available at the Fish Wildlife & Parks website below. Click below for a direct link.


* Click on the "ONLINE LICENSING SYSTEM" and continue with the remaining steps.

* You are not applying for a Special Elk Permit. We are in a general area. (This is the only confusing question on the application.)

About the Draw

These licenses will be issued through a random computer drawing. The drawings have been 100% successful since 2011; everybody that has applied for a combination license drew one with the exception to last year (2017). IT IS CRUCIAL YOU PURCHASE THE PREFERENCE POINT TO ENSURE DRAW SUCCESSWe encourage you to buy the additional $50 bonus point. We had seven hunters that chose to “save” money last year and THEY DID NOT DRAW A LICENSE.

The drawing results will be posted online mid-April. To quickly review draw results, click on the site below.


Successful applicants will receive their license and a separate hunting regulation package issued by the FWP.
