To prevent printed licenses from becoming wet, smudged and unreadable, Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks (FWP) suggests hunters keep those documents in a small, sealable plastic bag. That recommendation holds true for both before and after harvesting an animal.
FWP previously switched from using thermal paper to regular paper. Hunters can also keep a digital version of their non-carcass licenses on their phone.
The ability to print certain licenses from home also eliminates the need for customers to visit FWP offices, where COVID-19 safety protocols are in place and occupancy is limited.
