No, you had to sign up and choose between Deer, Elk or Deer Elk Combo which closed end of June then lotto to determine order by mid July.

Looking on GoHunt it looks like mid to late Nov in 2020 they got to the following numbers for each combo license:

Elk  589
Deer 256
Big Game  320

Post by: tikkahunter on July 16, 2021, 09:42:12 AM
I got a deer combo in 2019 positioned at 480.  I got the call early September.  I think they didnít get as far down the list last year because so many people were home/working remote easier to take the time off last min

Thank God for all these you tubers and pod casters telling everyone how easy it is. I guess I will be posting my wa general elk harvest

How would this work with the BMA's over there? New to Montana hunting so not sure if there is a quota or what, but that seems kinda late to secure a decent public place to hunt. Anyone have any insight? Thanks

thereís type 1 and 2.  Oneís s sign in and one is landowner permission.  Thereís lots of land to hunt over there, so I wouldnít worry.  We have over 8000 acres of private to hunt but we will probably stick mostly to public

The best BMAís will be reserved by the guides or locals before you get a chance.

You are on to something there!  All 7 of my 11-16 year old nephews and nieces are purchasing points for Wyoming deer, antelope, and elk and will never hunt Wyoming in their lives! ;)  Soon my 15 grandkids will be doing the same once they hit the 11 year old mark!

covid is helping too, I know some hunters from liberal states are bailing because they don't think they will be able to travel back home or may have to quarantine after getting back home

Luckily that doesnít apply to WA yet but I also might fail to see that warning.  We managed last year just fine.

The suck part is, Montana is giving you 10 days to purchase your Alternate license and tags. When people don't respond  to decline or accept your wait just keeps getting drawn out.
