Outdated printers that can no longer be serviced lead to some problems for hunters last year in Montana.

Some hunting licenses and tags faded and became blurry and forced holders to have them re-printed. This year, FWP is allowing you to print your license and tags at home.

Morgan Jacobsen explained the new procedure during Montana This Morning’s This Week in Fish and Wildlife segment with Chet Layman.

Hunters will be able to print license and tags, one time only, from a home computer. Those documents will work just as before but will need to be kept dry. Jacobsen suggests using a Ziploc style of bag, which will be available at FWP offices. He also says if hunters do not have access to a printer, they can still visit an FWP office and the documents will be printed for them there. He says the printed documents contain several security features to prevent folks from illegally trying to copy them. He also noted folks in Region-3 can call the Bozeman office for more information. Jacobsen says the Region-3 Headquarters now has a new phone number. (406) 577-7900.
