Leftover draw licenses will go on sale on June 29th. These permits will include 164 deer permits and 5 youth-only pronghorn licenses. The sale of these permits will start at 10 a.m. MDT. However, these leftover licenses will only be sold through the Department’s Online License System.

If any licenses are left over after the first 24 hours, the permits will be opened to non-residents at 10 a.m. June 30th.
Additionally, to buy a leftover license, hunters must possess an annual Game Hunting or Game Hunting and Fishing license.
