Montana Antelope (Pronghorn)

Where you live usually determines whether you call them Antelope or Pronghorn. In Montana we call them Antelope. Whatever you call them, you’ve likely grown to respect their legendary eye sight and know that once you’re busted, they’re probably long gone. Antelope run nearly 40 miles per hour, and usually travel in straight lines… in my experience, away from me. Never Miss provides application assistance for special permit applications for general and supertag Antelope licenses in Montana.

Montana does not offer any "over the counter" antelope tags. This means you must apply through the special permit application process in order to harvest an animal. You are pretty-well guaranteed to draw a tag in some regions, but for other regions you should plan to apply for a few years (building up points) before you draw a tag. The way that you "build up points" is by purchasing a "bonus point" each year you apply. It is possible that you will draw your tag the first year you apply, but if you do not, you get an extra "point" the following year. Starting in 2013, Montana will "square" these points, which means that in year two you will get your name in the hat four times (2 squared), year three nine times (3 squared), and so on.

Your Never Miss subscription will not only guarantee that you "Never Miss" a special permit application deadline, but it will also help you identify which regions produce the most trophy-quality animals, how long it should take for you to draw a tag, and the average success rate for hunters in the region. Our automated online system will help you choose the best region to apply to, based on your unique hunting preferences.

Listed below are 2012 dates. 2013 dates should be close to the same. This site will be updated with 2013 dates once they are released, which will be during the first few months of 2013. Antelope special permit applications are due by June 01, 2012. Successful applicants will be notified around July 18, 2012. Supertag applications must be submitted by July 5, 2012, and winners will be notified by July 16, 2012. The 900-series (Multiple-region Antelope Archery Only) season runs Aug 15 – Nov 11, but the regular archery-only season for antelope runs Sep 01 – Oct 05. The general season runs Oct 06 – Nov 11.*

These dates change from year to year. If you subscribe to our services you won't need to keep track of these dates or fill out the application forms and mail them in each year. We will also send you updates any time there are changes that may affect your upcoming hunt. Subscribe today to take advantage of these services.

*Please note that some season dates vary by district. The dates listed above are correct for most districts, but you should check fwp antelope regulations before planning your hunt. You should always read the hunting regulations prior to entering the field to ensure compliance to all regulations. Pronghorn Regulations are updated by FWP in early-September each year.
