2017 Montana Hunting License Fees:

General Deer, Elk and Bear Hunting Licenses

Due to the passage of citizens initiative I-161 on November 2nd 2010, the guaranteed outfitter sponsored license is no longer available in Montana. All licenses issued in 2011 – 2015 were on a random draw. However, the non-resident combination license(elk/deer/fishing) had a 100% success rate in the draw all four years and there were licenses still available through the fall hunting season. For the 2017 season, I anticipate a 100% success rate again for the combination license as well, providing your application is submitted prior to the March 15th deadline.

Montana also has a new preference point system that allows 75% of the licenses to go to the applicants with the highest amount of preference points. Give me a call and I can help you through the application process.

Combination (Elk, Deer) $1010
Elk Only  $851
Deer Only  $597
Black Bear  $350

K Lazy 3 Montana Fall Hunting Schedule:

For the Scapegoat Wilderness camps (Meadow Creek  and Camp Creek) the schedule provides for 7 day hunts where we have a maximum of 8 people per camp per hunt in Meadow Creek  and 4 people per camp per hunt in Camp Creek. The primary focus in these camps is elk hunting with mule deer hunting also available.

For the Mountain Goat hunt we only operate the hunt if one of our hunters draws a mountain goat tag. We schedule only one 7 day hunt in area 323 in early November.

For the Deer Creek Mountains Hunt, the schedule provides for 4 day hunts where we have a maximum of 5 people per hunt. The primary focus in this camp has been mule deer hunting, however since the Derby Mtn. fire of 2006, our elk hunting has been excellent as well, so a combination harvest is possible.

We are currently taking bookings for the 2017 and 2018 seasons, as a lot of hunts are already booked and we are getting a lot of calls. The schedule and openings for 2016 and 2017 are identified in the following schedule.
