Sales of non-resident Montana licenses lagging, again

In the four years since a ballot initiative raised the price of Montana’s non-resident hunting licenses significantly, sales have been lagging, resulting in revenue shortfalls to Fish, Wildlife and Parks. Before the 2010 increase, a lottery system was used because there were far more applicants than tags available. This year, the total undersold licenses amount to more than $3.3 million in potential FWP revenue. Helena IR.
