Montana residents and nonresidents can show support for members of the military who have given the ultimate sacrifice by donating their hunting license to a disabled military veteran or disabled active duty service member.
The disabled veteran or active armed forces member who receives the donated hunting license must be working with an organization that uses hunting as part of the rehabilitation process.
While one can’t choose the organization to receive a donated license, the disabled veteran or armed forces member who receives the license will be a Purple Heart recipient and have a 70 percent or greater disability rating.
Each license must be donated or surrendered before the beginning of the hunting season. One cannot repurchase the same license again during the license year.
