Long time Montana hunters will notice a slightly new format in the state’s 2010 big game hunting regulation booklet and find several new opportunities for deer, elk and antelope for the upcoming season.

Montana Big Game Regulations

Run, don’t walk, to your local license agent and stock up on Montana’s 2010 big game regulations.

The always anticipated moose, bighorn sheep and mountain goat, as well as deer, elk and antelope regulations are being delivered around the state this week.

Besides looking to see if the quotas, dates or regulations have changed for deer, elk or antelope, check out page 4 to see what’s new statewide. On page 5 are the 2010 season dates and application deadlines. Statewide highlights are on page 2 of the moose, sheep and goat regulations.

The regulations have been out since mid-March on the FWP web site: www.fwp.mt.gov. But it’s also nice to have the hard copy in hand.

Applications for permits and licenses are also on the web site, as well as at all license agents.
