Here’s the skinny: Hunters can win Montana’s SuperTag Lottery by purchasing one or more $5 SuperTag chances for the fall 2018 hunting season. The following eight SuperTag hunt licenses are offered: moose, bighorn sheep, mountain goat, elk, deer, antelope, mountain lion and bison. One SuperTag will be drawn for each species.

And here’s the best part: Winners can hunt any district open to the species for which they won a tag. In other words, with a bit of research completed, you can hike into Montana’s legendary trophy districts and not have to wait many years to finally draw.

FYI to Bowhunters Who Regularly Apply for Montana Licenses

If you win a SuperTag, and also draw a license or permit through FWP’s special permit license drawings, you’ll be required to surrender that license or permit before receiving the SuperTag. However, FWP will refund the license fee associated with the special permit or license and reinstate any bonus points. Montana’s 7-year wait for individuals who draw a moose, sheep or goat license through Montana’s special permit license drawings will not be imposed on SuperTag winners.
