Since Montana jumped the price of the combo elk/deer tag last year, there might be some leftovers. I'm not hunting MT this year so I'm a little behind on this, but last year, quite a few hunters picked up the Non res tags after the draw. You need to call MT ASAP if you're serious and find out if the opportunity is available this year. Be ready to shell out some bucks if you have to buy both the elk/deer tag (that might be all that is left over). Let us know what you find out.

Yeah my buddy "and sales rep @ Black Gold Bowsights" told me just a couple weeks ago that there were a ton of leftover tags in MT and he wanted me to come out there and hunt this year...Sadly it won't happen this year, oldest kid starts college this fall and I just won't have the time or extra loot to pull of that trip this year.

Its absurd the amount of money there charging for tags. As you can see that has turned a lot of hunters off from hunting Montana. Idaho lost millions because of it and now New Mexico and Montana are to follow suit. What a shame
