Montana elk hunting question

hey guys how are you all doing?
my names alek im 19 and im new to the board.
and i come from a family that doesnt really hunt, so they cant help me with the questions i have. so i was wondering if maybe you guys could help me answer a few of these?
i just have a question i want to ask about elk hunting that has got me confused.
i hunt montana every year in the fort peck reservoir area.
i always get my mulies. but last year i hunted elk for the first time (different zone), and loved it, even though i didnt get one.
but im interested in hunting elk in the fort peck reservoir area.
i know that getting a general tag for that area is difficult, but i hear archery tags are easier to receive. how should i apply for a archery tag? do i first apply for a general elk/deer tag, and if i recieve it, i then apply for a archery permit with that general tag? how does that work? as you can see im really confused. so if anyone can help me with that, i would really be thankful, thank you.

Mountainprowler, First of all Welcome to BGH. Big smile

The way I understand it with the Fort Peck (Breaks) archery tags is....You need to apply for the general elk/deer combo or just the elk combo. If successful in drawing that, you then can apply for a 700-20 unlimited archery tag in the May. These archery tags are unlimited for that area.
