We might go to montana shortly to help a relative with calving on his ranch. We will undoubtedly be at least shooting at some coyotes. My question is- I think montana hunting license expired 3/30 and we are in the draw for the big game combo. Since we have to buy the base hunting license to apply  will we have and official hunting license for 2023 right now ? Or do we get the license after the draw has taken place? Or should I just call Montana  :chuckle:
I could be completely wrong but for some reason I was thinking that you didn't need a hunting license at all for coyotes in MT :dunno:

Thats awesome if true. I will check it out. When i was a teenager living there we pretty much assumed coyotes were to be shot on sight with no license required. Maybe I was right for once as a young guy  :chuckle:

Last time I checked a couple years ago Karl was rightÖ.but still do your diligence and check the regs I think it is called unregulated wildlife or something like that.

No license needed to shoot yotes in Montana. They are open year around

With the 40% - 70% winter mortality I'm hearing I might not be too disappointed if I don't draw...................

Report from last year didnít look great. Thatís before whatever winter kill happened this winter I believe. Really region 7 and recently 6 seem to be contributing the most to the decline. I think thatís where most out of state hunters go but I donít really know.

Might have been a good year to buy a preference point and not draw. I think many more hunters gambled on the 0 points pool this year since the odds were so well publicized, we went for zero points. I think I can buy a leftover come home to hunt tag if we donít draw? but I donít like going without my son. I usually just pay extra(financially stupid 😂)and draw as a party with him. Itís both or nothing! I went a few times alone and the hunt was good but I would way rather go together. Too much information probably lol. Putting off building a fence. Happy Easter

From what Iíve seen and experienced, pts donít matter in a group draw, couple peeps with 1 pt(the so called no no area u wanna be in) but party leader had 2, whole group goes, so who knows, I didnít get drawn last year, had zero pts, but got lucky with alternate list and got to go.

Preference points are averaged for groups. So if some have 1 point and one has 2 that app has an average of more than 1. the higher the points the closer to the front of the line for tags. The points do matter in groups.

Bullblaster beat me to it. If they had 3 guys and a total of 4pts they went into the draw at 1.3pts which put their odds greater than 1pt. 1pt odds were 17% last year. 1.3 put them closer to 50%
