Exactly, we are 1472 & 1473! No way it was randomized, as their website claims. I will be calling them (along with many others) Monday, to see if there is some sort of explanation.

you can be contacted up until the last day of the season. As a tag is returned it is then offered up to next in line.

They go surprisingly far sometimes because the names ahead of you can say no as well.  Some guys already have plans by the time they get the call.  Once the season starts some don't want to pay for a tag for a partial season too.

Yes called me and asked if I wanted the tag  . I said yes and paid via CC . Tag was in my mailbox within a week . While I had her on the phone I asked her the average amount of people that canceled their tag
 She told me 90 people dropped out the night before my phone call .

Alternateís List UPDATE, JULY 31, 2020
The Alternateís List has been updated to correct a technical error with the initial posting of the list.  The error was that the original list displayed the order that customers signed up instead of the randomized ordered list that was intended and required.  The error occurred as a result of a brittle and antiquated licensing system.  A new licensing system is underway and is slated to be operational for the 2022 license year.  FWP apologizes for the confusion this has caused.

that doesnt mean there was 800 tags. That just means the tags made it into the 800's. Remember, you don't have to say yes to tag. Lots of people turn them down, especially that late into the year.

I was told the queue number that's posted in your Montana licensing account reduces as people below you either 'pass' or buy a license when offered one.  Is this how it worked in the past?

Also, do you know how long they give you to respond after they send out the email to offer a license?

In years past as they update the system yes your number changed . Last year I never got an email , just a phone call , asking if I wanted a tag .

I have not heard anything, and I am unchanged at #239.  Any Hunt-Wa members with a lower number have status?

Ill be sure to post if/when I see anything to help others gauge the timing.

With the economy/job issues and Mt alt list debacle, hard to think there won't be a lot of licenses returned and people passing on the alt tag call...

I wouldn't bet on that if hunting is anything like fishing.  I can't believe how many people are out in pretty much every area this year, probably double or triple last year, some days even more.

People are recreating at record levels.  Buying boats, buying RV's, getting out everywhere.

You all let everyone know what your list number is, but what are you trying to buy...there are three tags that could be available, the deer combo, big game combo and elk combo , I am guessing most folks want the deer, then big game, lastly elk combo....
Guess youíre right there. I was talking deer combo and assumed.

I signed up on the Deer B surplus list and was contacted yesterday that I was selected. Maybe theyíre starting to get around to the Alternate list too? On the Surplus list I was 1366 of like 1820.

Dansk,
   I received an email two days ago to purchase surplus B tag.
   I should add that you have 10 days to purchase from the date of the email.

I'm kinda undecided to get any B-tags, the unit that I was given to purchase from has a high number of positive CWD harvested deer.  I know I can get them tested, but just another thing to worry about ..... between CWD and Covid-19 this world is out of control.

I am number 251 for deer combo and didn't hear anything..... I would assume it would be for deer/elk combo.

Yeah - that makes more sense.  I am 239 for Deer and nothing yet.  I will be sure to post when I get the email.

I just called them they are at #261 for the big game combo. I never got the email, it ended in my spam folder. No idea why, the email looks legit and I get all their other emails. Anyway thank you all for talking about this lol. I would have missed out had I waited another week!

I received an email for deer combo yesterday as well I am #251. I am stoked to be headed back to Montana to hunt, its been a few years since I've been! Now if only one of my other buddies gets a tag it'd be amazing, he is number 800ish.

Not sure if this is good or bad for you but the deer combo is at 282. 6 returns in 13 days is pretty slow
