You are responsible for printing and carrying your licenses, permits, and carcass tags at all times when hunting, fishing or recreating on state lands. FWP suggests placing the carcass tag in a plastic bag before attaching to the animal carcass.
If you applied for a drawing during your online session, an application receipt will be attached. The application receipt contains species, hunting districts, bonus/preference point information, and party number (if applicable), from your online application. You can log on to MyFWP at fwp.mt.gov/myfwp/ to view your application status.
Licenses, permits and carcass tags are printed on 8½" x 11" regular white paper. An email will be sent to you at the conclusion of your transaction that will include your non carcass licenses to print from your home printer. If you purchased a license that includes a carcass tag, you have the option to print them from home (a link will be included in the email) or have FWP print and mail them to you. If you select to print from home, and do not print within 5 days of purchase, FWP will automatically print and send the tags by mail. You will select your option further into the transaction.
If you purchased:
Purchases requiring a decal will be mailed to you within 10 days of purchase.
Montana Fish Wildlife & Parks will check your information against the Interstate Wildlife Violator Compact and FWP's forfeiture database. This database contains information of individuals who have violated hunting and fishing laws in Montana and other states that are members of this compact, and have had their hunting and/or fishing privileges suspended or forfeited. IT IS A MISDEMEANOR TO APPLY FOR LICENSES WHILE PRIVILEGES ARE SUSPENDED OR FORFEITED, AND WILL RESULT IN ADDITIONAL FINES AND PENALTIES. For additional information, contact the Montana Wildlife Violator Compact Administrator at 406-444-2452.
