    I know if you own land in South Dakota even as a nonresident you are guaranteed landowner permits. It has to be so many acres I believe. If you're looking for something in Montana or Wyoming send me your information and I can get you in contact with someone that can help.

    The only way to get a resident tag in Montana is to pay Montana state income tax as a resident. owning land only gives some preference in the draws. As far as OTC, wolf, mountain loin, and if I remember correctly bear are OTC. you can also get sever OTC licenses for antler-less whitetail.

    You gotta live in Montana for 6 months also before buying a resident license

    That would be 6 month with a Valid MT DL.

    Come to Texas. No drawing. Just buy a license and all tags are included.

    Wyoming seems to have the best landowner system that I have seen. Just need 160 acres. What species are you wanting to hunt?
