Montana’s wolf hunting licenses will be available beginning Aug. 4 for the state’s 2014-15 regulated wolf hunting season.

For the 2014-15 wolf seasons, hunters will have the opportunity to pursue wolves throughout Montana beginning Sept. 6 for archery hunting, Sept. 15 for the general rifle season and Dec. 15 for trapping.

Licenses will be valid within 18 specifically defined wolf management units. Hunters must obtain permission to hunt on private lands.

Wolf licenses will be available for purchase online at fwp.mt.gov, or from any FWP license provider. Hunters must have, or also purchase, a valid 2014 conservation license. Wolf hunting licenses are $19 for residents and $50 for nonresidents.

Hunters can purchase up to five wolf licenses. A trapping license, and the successful completion of a wolf trapping certification course, is needed to trap wolves in Montana.
