Montana Webless Migratory Birds

Montana requires the purchase of Conservation License and a MT Migratory Bird License in order to hunt Sandhill Crane, Mourning Doves, or Common 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 (except Mourning Dove) must retain the fully feathered head at all times during transport.

You should review the fwp migratory bird regulations and 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.
