FWP Fishing license available March 1st

Category : Uncategorized

Dear license buyer,

Happy new license year! March 1 is the day you can buy your 2024 hunting and fishing licenses and begin applying for permits and special licenses. The deadline to apply for deer and elk permits is April 1, but don’t wait until the last minute. It’s a good idea to apply early.

Applications for most species – deer, elk, antelope, deer B licenses, elk B licenses, antelope B licenses, moose, sheep, goat, bison, bear, turkey – can be made beginning March 1.

New for this year, Montana residents purchasing a general deer or elk license between March 1 and June 30 are automatically entered into a lottery for a free moose, sheep, or goat license (species determined by the Fish and Wildlife Commission).

Please note that General Deer Licenses and Deer B Licenses for antlerless mule deer in Regions 6 and 7 are valid only on private land.

You can buy licenses and apply for permits on the FWP website beginning at 5 a.m. on March 1; click on “Buy and Apply.” Most FWP offices will be open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Once you have your licenses and permits, you can use the MyFWP mobile app to hold and display licenses, permits and E-Tags. Once you’ve downloaded these items, you will be able to access them in the field without cell service.

If you do not already have a MyFWP account, you can set one up through the MyFWP login page.

The licensing call center will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. from March 1 through April 1; after April 1, the hours will return to 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The call center can be reached at 406-444-2950.

Hello Walleye Tournament Fishermen and Women! The FWP dates are still in the proposed status and are subject to change.
