This is the first time I have drawn this permit, or any other premium permit, Dr. I am stoked, though!

Congratulations to all on drawing tags! I'm already looking forward to reading about it in Eastman's Hunting Journal, Bitterroot!

Let's not get ahead of ourselves, AKA.

I am pretty excited.

After 20 plus years of applying for limited deer, I am going to have to put some time in on this one.

20 year wait.....? Sounds like 270 to me if it's in the Bitterroots but whatever you pulled best wishes to you. May you have a very awesome and successful hunt. I hope your work, and family give you some time off for this one Matt. I'm very excited for you.

Sure would be nice to see some nice pictures when you get out and after your all done.

Does anyone know when leftovers go on sale[/QUOTE]

I talked with the game and fish and what they said is that they do have all three big game combo's tags leftover.

I did not ask when they would go on sale.

I asked how many tags were left over and what their reply was they would have to get count on them & will know by tomorrow. I think there'll be online soon.

No special tags for me just a general deer/elk combo. Now that this draw is out-of-the-way I will pick myself off the ground and looking forward to the next one, even a blind squirrel gets lucky once in a while & finds a nut.

Is it expected that there will be 900 series antelope tags left? I can't find if there were and how many left over last year.

If I don't draw a Colorado archery deer tag I would like to do Montana antelope and fishing as a back-up.

I will be archery hunting for a bull around my home territory. Now if I could just get one of the big 3 tags, everything would be set.

There has not been left over 900 tags for antelope up here in the past. Antelope numbers are down over alot of Montana. Where I live, north of Ft. Peck, the heard is WAY down thanks to the winter of 2010-11.

They give out 5600 900 tags and last year there were 461 leftover.

Antelope apps aren't due until June 1.

I would guess 900 archery will have some left over this year.

The antelope districts north of Ft. Peck are dismal right now for sure. It didn't help that so many of them crossed the lake while it was frozen during that winter.

Not surprisingly, the south-of-the-lake units are in much better shape for numbers, thanks to the influx.

Montana does have about 1300 deer elk combo's & 1600 deer combo's left over go on sale May 6.

BB, my buddy also drew a limited entry mule deer permit this year. I've applied for same area for 8 years and never drawn, he puts in for 2nd time and bingo!

Perhaps we will bump into each other in the hills somewhere up no-tell-em creek.

Good luck with your permit, hope the wait will be well worth it!!!

Guess I got lucky. Really was hoping for a sheep or goat tag but drew a Shiras Moose tag in 325. Don't know much about moose hunting other than I would love to get one. Probably end up hiring a guide since its a special tag and don't much about the area or moose in general.
Any recommendations on the unit or guides for the Anaconda area? There was two listed on the fish and game site don't know if those are the only two options or not. They were Centennial and Jakes Horses. Any experience with either?

325 is a relatively small area they only give out two moose tags for 325. I would think the success rate would be 100% .
