Montana Conservation Group Holds Open Raffle for Coveted Statewide Mule Deer Tag

The Montana chapter of Backcountry Hunters & Anglers (BHA) is hosting a raffle for one of the Treasure State’s most coveted big game tags, and it’s open residents and non-residents alike. The winner will get an antlered mule deer tag valid in every hunt unit in the state—even hard-to-draw units knows for massive mulies. It’s the first time that a Montana conservation organization has hosted an open raffle for a trophy tag, as licenses like this are typically auctioned off to the highest bidder during banquet hall ceremonies.

Montana’s statewide mule deer tag will be valid for the 2024 big game season during the archery, rifle, and muzzleloader seasons. According to BHA Regional Policy Coordinator Kevin Farron, all funds raised during the raffle will go to Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks (FWP), and those dollars will be earmarked for mule deer conservation work. 

Equal Opportunity Tags?

“What we’re trying to do with this is prove that in today’s world of social media and online ticket buying, this is a legitimate alternative to the auction model that only benefits a few individuals of great means,” Farron tells F&S.
