Reminder: Montana Deer and Elk Application Deadline

Don’t miss the 2018 Montana deer and elk application deadline! Applications for your Montana Nonresident Combination License must be submitted by March 15.


In years past there have been leftovers after the initial drawing. But that wasn’t the case last year. Licenses are now selling out in the initial draw, so you shouldn’t count on being able to pick up a leftover license later.

Deer hunters especially must apply in the drawing. Last year, deer licenses sold out in the initial draw. Even elk hunters are strongly encouraged to apply this year as we have no way of knowing if any elk licenses will be left over.

Montana is home to some of the best general-unit elk hunting and deer hunting anywhere in the west right now. The secret is out, and these general season licenses are going faster than ever.

If you’re not sure how to apply or need help getting started, we are here to help. Please give us a call as soon as possible at 406-932-5687 or contact us online. We walk you through the process to submit your application before the March 15 deadline. The process is simple and easy.


Here at Lazy J Bar O Outfitters, we offer hunts in the famed Bob Marshall Wilderness and in the rugged wilderness areas of southwest Montana. Both of these hunts fall under the general combination license. With booming elk numbers and some outstanding trophy quality, this is truly some of the best elk hunting in the world that doesn’t require a low-odds lottery tag or a private ranch price tag.

We hunt remote and rugged wilderness areas using the finest horses and mules in the business. We’re a breeder ourselves, so we have access to the best stock. Our horseback style of hunting and the ability to stay mobile in these remote areas makes our hunts highly successful.

If you’d like more information, please contact us right away. Again the deadline to apply for 2018 is March 15! Please call us now at 406-932-5687 or send us a message.
