They say by April 20 but MT is pretty quick and are usually ahead of the game. Last year was the 14th I think?
Title: Re: Montana results???
Post by: Fishhunt223 on April 08, 2021, 07:37:19 AM
I have been checking every day, usually multiple times just in case they publish early. Last year the results were posted on the 14th.

Post by: HighGrouseHunt on April 08, 2021, 08:25:09 AM
Given how much they charge for the Non-resident Combo licenses it would be awfully considerate of them to post the results before the start of Turkey season so that license holders can get the full value of their licenses if they chose to.

If you draw a combo big game license you can get turkey tags for $57.50. If not, that price jumps to at least $115. Turkey opens Saturday.

They already came out, if you didn't get an email this morning that means you didn't get drawn! :chuckle:  I heard it was going to be the 14th, so hopefully sometime next week.  Also heard applicants were up 45% this year, YIKES!  Hopefully we will draw again, good luck to all!

Post by: Twispriver on April 09, 2021, 04:11:19 PM
Here's wishing you all good fortune in the draw. I'm hoping I draw again but if I don't I'm still luckier than most in that my son lives there and I'll still get to go, set up camp and spend time with him in the hills even if I can't shoot.

Backdoor came through - looks like I'm dancing!  Glad I paid the extra $50 to get up to 2 pref points - I knew I had a good shot but was still sweating.  It'll be interesting to see what draw odds were.

Deer combo unsuccessful with 3 pref points. :bash:
are you sure you did your app correctly or did indeed have 3pts? Its a preference point system so 3pt gets tags before anyone with 2pts or 1pt and I know guys who had 1pt that pulled tags. May be worth a call if you did indeed have 3pts :twocents:

Yeah that does seem screwy.  Although I don't think it's quite that simple - last year for the combo draw goHunt says 2 pref points was 100%, 1 point was was 69% and 0 points was 65%.  Not really sure why 1 and 0 points were so close together on a true pref point system (?)

If my research is correct and all of the applicants in the group had 3 preference points each, this should be an impossible outcome.  Something is not correct.

Title: Re: Montana results???
Post by: Karl Blanchard on April 14, 2021, 01:23:12 PM
75% of tags are allocated to point holders.  After that 25% are random. So likely the small percentage of 1pt holders that didn't draw likely didn't make the 75% cut and got tossed into the random pool. As dvolmer stated, not drawing with 3 is currently impossible.

Possible to do!!!  But getting luckier/harder and luckier/harder each year.  25% of the licenses go in a random draw.  This is a good strategy if you want to get a license and hunt in Montana every 3 to 4 years on average would be my guess.

We haven't hunted elk before in MT...need to figure out if we'll do archery in addition to rifle.  For sure do rifle deer mid nov and maybe try to do rifle elk as well.  Guess that depends on where we hunt, which we don't know yet.  Went to broadus area last time and ran into WA plates everywhere.

I put in last year (only time) and didn't get drawn, they mail a check which is a load of crap (paid with card) thing is, they never sent mine, I had to call a couple times and eventually they did, so keep on it, should be around 2-3 weeks of draw.

Hopefully you clicked the "refund me if I don't draw" button, I think it defaults to donating it to the state if you don't draw. :chuckle:

Nonresident hunters can sign up between May 15 and June 30 for Alternateís List

Beginning May 15 and running through June 30, nonresident hunters can register their name to the Alternateís List on MyFWP. Every year, Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks gets several unused nonresident combination licenses (big game, general elk and general deer combination licenses) returned by customers. FWP resells these returned licenses through the Alternateís List.

The Alternateís List is an option for nonresident hunters to express their interest in purchasing one of these returned licenses by registering their name to this listing.  A hunter can register to purchase their choice of only one nonresident combination license per year (big game, general elk, or general deer combination licenses). Once the list is randomized in mid-July, and a license becomes available, the hunter in the uppermost randomized position on the list will be contacted by email to finalize the purchase of the license, and so on until the returned NR combo licenses are eventually exhausted.

Payment for the license fee is not required to sign up for the Alternateís List. If your randomized position falls at the top of the listing, you will be contacted by email with instructions on how to complete the purchase of the license. Being on this list or obtaining a license from this list has no effect on your existing preference points.

 MyFWP also allows you to check where your position lands on this Alternateís List after the randomization process occurs in mid-July.  Please be sure to check back after then.

The odds of getting a license from these lists vary greatly from year to year. Refunds and issuance may occur at any time after mid-July, but availability of these licenses increase between early fall and the opening of general hunting season in late October.

For more information, visit http://fwp.mt.gov/hunting/licensedraw/alternatesList.html.
