MT elk tag help
I'm new to the MT game and need some help understanding how it works. If you are not drawn for a limited quota tag can you return your combo tag, or are you stuck with a hunt you may not want? If you can return it do they refund all your money?
What about cow tags. Here's what I'd like to do. I want to put in for a good limited hunt every year, and in years where I don't draw I'd at least like to have the option to hunt on a cow tag. Ideally, it would be for the limited area so I could learn it. I don't mind cow tags because they put me hunting elk at a much lower cost.
Montana is crazy ridiculous. Long story short, it will cost you about $200 to get an elk point. For cow tags, you'd have to get their booklet, look in the unit you want to hunt and see what is available. I'm pretty sure they have some cheap cow tags around $300 or so but I don't think they are for every unit. You really need to get the regulations book and then look it up.
