Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks is conducting a test of the permit drawing this week in preparation for the annual 2018 deer and elk permit drawing next week. Joleen Tadej wrote in a news release that the drawing will be the week of April 23 and the results will be available on-line.

To check those results, you need to sign up to the new Montana FWP website - MyFWP. The pages are available by first calling up the regular FWP website and clicking on the "myfwp" tab. Then, you sign up for your own account. There are other features on the new site, too.

If you have questions about any licensing issue call (406) 444-2950. By the way, deadline for applications for moose, sheep and goat permits is May 1st and deadline for antlerless elk and deer is June 1.
