Either download the application form from or simply complete it online. 5/S Outfitting will be happy to send you an application form to fill out and mail back to the state. As your outfitter, we will gladly assist you with the website application process.

Please note that outfitter sponsored guaranteed licenses are no longer in effect. The 2013 Montana Elk/Deer Combination license will all be on a draw basis. The last few years, not all the licenses were sold and we anticipate all who apply will have a license. If you give us a deposit and are unfortunate to not be drawn, we will refund your deposit in full or hold it for the following year.

Due to a change in the Montana regulations for lion permits, outfitters no longer receive guaranteed Lion permits for their clients. Therefore, we have eliminated our "pre-scheduled" lion hunt. It is up to you to obtain your Montana lion hunting permit prior to setting up a hunt with us. If you are successful in obtaining a lion permit, you may then call us to inquire about a guided hunt. To apply for a Montana Mountain Lion Permit, Please see the Montana Online Licensing system at:

The deposit required on all Deer/Elk rifle, & archery hunts is $1,000.00, and the deposit on bear hunts is $800.00. This amount is applied towards the hunt of your choice, with the balance due in the form of cash or cashier's check at the time of your arrival. Or, you may pay the balance by personal check 30 days prior to your hunt. A deposit refund is given when a hunter is unsuccessful at drawing a tag.
