good luck onehorse. will you get to scout the trophy elk area if you get drawn? if you go scouting bring the camera so we can all enjoy your trips.
That's an area I can scout before the season, and I'll do that if I get drawn. Not sure about getting the horses in there as the road in is pretty rough for trailering - I already checked that out. There are a ton of deer and elk in there though. I'll keep you informed.good luck onehorse. will you get to scout the trophy elk area if you get drawn? if you go scouting bring the camera so we can all enjoy your trips.
i believe co is over the counter elk and onehorse should be able to confirm or not but i believe mt is as well.Is all western elk, antelope etc hunting determined by lottery systems?
granted there are probably variances by state.
but it seems like there is no such thing as going Elk hunting out west on a whim.
a lot of states have gone that route to get more out of state money. a good way to go i guess but it rules out the do it yourself type hunts on public land.It may also have gone to a lottery, but the two times I hunted with a guide in Idaho the outfitter applied for your license for you. He was guaranteed a certain number for his area that he guided. The last time I was on one of those hunts was 1990 so alot could have changed.
In Montana nonresidents have to enter a drawing for an elk,deer or antelope either sex license. The fee is $643 for a combination elk/deer. Just deer is $343; just elk is $593. If you contract an outfitter, you can get a guaranteed elk/deer license for $1250. Antelope drawing is $205. No guarantee tags for antelope even if you want an outfitter. There are also doe/cow licenses that are OTC: elk $273; deer $75. Doe antelope tages are also available OTC. Sorry, I don't know the price for these.i believe co is over the counter elk and onehorse should be able to confirm or not but i believe mt is as well.
