Montana Bill Would Establish Landowner Preference Hunting Tag Program

Montana LC 739 would create landowner preference (LOP) licenses and permits to hunt deer and antelope for owners of 160 acres or more of “real property that is primarily used for agricultural purposes in a hunting district.” LOP tags are available to landowners, family members, or others designated by the landowners, based on how the acreage is owned. The bill has not yet been assigned to a committee.
