Montana Common Snipe

Montana requires the purchase of Conservation License and a MT Migratory Bird License in order to hunt Snipe in Montana. All migratory bird hunters in Montana, as well as in all other states, are required to take part in a National Harvest Survey Program.

Migratory birds may be taken only by bow or shotgun not larger than ten guage incapable of holding more than three shells and fired from the shoulder. Harvested birds must retain the fully feathered head at all times during transport.

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. The Common (Wilson's) Snipe season runs statewide from Sept 01 through Dec 16. There is a daily bag limit of eight (8) birds, and a limit of sixteen (16) in possession. Please review the fwp webless migratory bird regulations before planning your hunt and prior to entering the field to ensure compliance to all regulations. Webless Migratory Bird Regulations are updated by FWP in mid-August each year.
