(1) A game damage hunt roster will be used to provide a list of hunters available to participate in game damage hunts and management seasons, according to the following procedures:
(a) hunters interested in participating in game damage hunts and management seasons will apply through the department web site between June 15 and July 15 annually. A roster will be established through a computerized random selection of applicant names, with roster results being made available on-line by August 1 annually. Hunters without internet access may apply at any department regional or Helena office between June 15 and July 15 annually. If necessary, the department may establish additional sign-up periods;
(b) hunters may apply only for one antelope hunting district, one deer hunting district, and one elk hunting district;
(c) resident and nonresident hunters must possess a valid unused antelope, deer, or elk license specific to the species being hunted to participate in a game damage hunt or management season; and
(d) nonresident hunters who possess a valid unused antelope, deer, or elk license may comprise up to 10% of the total game damage hunt roster pool of hunters for a specific game damage hunt or management season.
(2) If sufficient hunters to participate in a game damage hunt or management season for a hunting district cannot be identified from that district's game damage hunt roster, hunters on the roster from an adjacent hunting district may be selected.
