Nonresidents also have the opportunity to purchase a preference point for the nonresident combination license drawing. Nonresidents who did not apply for a combination license this year may purchase a preference point to be used in next year’s combination drawing, which has a deadline of March 15, 2019. Preference points may be purchased for $50.

In Montana, every hunter who applies for a special big game license through a drawing can participate in the bonus point system for an extra fee paid at the time of application. Hunters cannot apply for a special drawing and separately purchase bonus points in the same year.
The fee to purchase a bonus point without applying for a license is $15 per species for residents. Nonresident fees are $25 per species except for moose, sheep and goat, which are $75 per species. Hunters can purchase bonus points for species that they have not yet applied for. For instance, if you’ve never applied for a moose license, you can purchase a moose bonus point.
Montana hunters who did not apply for this year’s special license drawings or who are new to hunting have until Sept. 30 to purchase bonus points to help in future drawings.
This opportunity allows hunters not applying for special licenses to still build their bonus points by purchasing one for future drawings.
Accumulated bonus points do not expire and allow hunters additional chances for success when applying for special licenses.
