Yah, I'd be surprised if non res were included in this hunt unless they can't get enough resident hunters.  I'm surprised they couldn't get enough info in the regular hunt. Looks like they will have up to 1,000 hunters taking 400 deer.

I don’t know why non res hunters wouldn’t. As long as they had hunting license for the yr already

Following some links I found info that says it will be a separate license sold over the counter only on a first come first served basis and only valid for this hunt. Doesn't say anything about residents only. 600 whitetail and 600 mule deer. There will be check stations and once they have enough deer the hunt will be over.

What I saw was that resident licenses were $10 each and non-resident licenses would be $20 each.

First come first served. Resident and non resident. $10 and $20.

FWP will sell 500 licenses for each of the two season segments. Of those, 100 will be either-sex tags while 400 will be for antlerless animals only. Licenses will cost $10 for residents and $20 for non-residents.

Why would they sell 2x as many permits? So if I buy for the second hunt and they already have filled the quota then game over?

Has anyone found out what time they go on sale the 11th? I imagine they will go quick, at least the any deer ones.

Sounds like you can put in for several, not sure how that would work but I'll probably give it a shot.  It would be well worth the trip to put a couple does in the freezer.

Anyone see what time the sale starts, it wasn't mentioned in what I read?

I called and asked a representative in the billings FWP office, I was trying to find out if they planned to expedite mailing of the tags with the short window between online purchases and season opening. She told me the tags will go online at 5 am on the 11th online and will be available at vendors as they open. I assumed mountain time since all of Montana is, and I am in mountain time as well
