If I want to submit a bighorn sheep, mountain goat or moose Special Permit, do I need to buy a hunting license and tag first?

No. You can wait to purchase a bighorn sheep, mountain goat or moose license and tag until you find out if you drew a Special Permit. You can submit a Special Permit application for any of these three species without purchasing a general season license and tag.

If drawn for one these Special Permits, you must purchase the hunting license by the deadline established by the Department. You will be mailed instructions on how and when to complete the purchase. Failure to purchase by the deadline forfeits the Special Permit to an alternate applicant.
