(1) The department issues elk permits for landowner preference described in 87-2-705, MCA, according to the following policies and procedures:
(a) The statutory requirement of 640 acres of contiguous land is used only to determine if the applicant is eligible to apply as a landowner.
(b) If license/permits are valid in a designated portion of a hunting district, some of the land owned by the applicant must be within the boundaries of that portion.
(c) Both resident and nonresident landowners must use the special drawing application provided by the department. The department shall verify that the applicant owns 640 acres, that it is contiguous land used by elk, and that the designee of the landowner preference is eligible.
