Hunters Should Double Check Some Drawing Stats

Send by email Printer-friendly version Share this

A printing error in Montana’s big game hunting regulation booklet resulted in incorrect special drawing statistics for some mountain goat and bighorn sheep hunting districts.

The drawing statistics are listed on page 13 of Montana’s 2005 Moose, Bighorn Sheep, and Mountain Goat Hunting Regulations. Hunters often refer to the drawing statistics to determine their chances of obtaining a license should they apply for a given hunting district.

The correct information for first-choice resident applicants is listed below and can also be found on FWP’s Hunt Planner.
