Any controlled hunt drawing tags not purchased will be forfeited and available in a second drawing.

If you are a hunter who was successful in the 2021 controlled hunt drawing, don’t forget to purchase your controlled hunt tag by Aug. 1.

Successful applicants must purchase their controlled hunt tags by 11:59 p.m. MT on Aug. 1 or their tags will be forfeited. All unclaimed tags, along with controlled hunt tags no one applied for, will be available in a second drawing, with the application period running from Aug. 5 through Aug. 15. Successful applicants for the second drawing will be notified by Aug. 25.

After the second drawing, any leftover tags will be sold first-come, first-served beginning Aug. 25 at 10 a.m. MT.

Hunters who did not draw a controlled hunt tag (as well as those who did) still have the opportunity to get a prime deer, elk, pronghorn or moose hunt through the Super Hunt program, which is separate from and different than other controlled hunts. Winners can participate in any open hunt in the state for deer, elk, pronghorn or moose, including general hunts and controlled hunts, in addition to any general season or controlled hunt tags they also hold. All other rules of individual hunts apply.

Super Hunt entries are $6 each, or $20 each for the Super Hunt combo.

The entry period goes through Aug. 10. Tags for two elk, two deer, two pronghorn, one moose, and one Super Hunt Combo will be drawn. Winners will be notified by Aug. 15. Hunters may enter the drawings at license vendors, Fish and Game offices, online, or by calling 1-800-554-8685.
