Your guess on returned elk/deer combo

I didn't apply for Montana this year because I thought I was drawing another limited tag and then didn't so I put myself on the returned tag list for elk/deer combo. I thought the random assigned numbers weren't until mid July but I just check and it says I'm #678 out of like 1350 or so. Any guess if this is possible for getting a tag before archery season? if not before rifle season? I know it changes just thought I get your best guess. Any rough guess is appreciated.
 
couple years ago I talked to a guy that was like #231 and his wife was like 240 something and she never got a tag.

Yes I should have ended my post with is it even likely at all to get the tag with that number. Appreciate the feedback!
 
I have big game combo alternate list #1876 out of #2706. Looks like no chance for a MT tag for me.

Last year I was #1336 and got as close as #516 the last week of November. I am sure many people turned down tags the later you get into the hunting season and they offer it to the next person on the list. I moved up 266 positions by 1 Sept.

Interesting. Well maybe I have a shot, mine is the deer&elk combo I guess the deer is separate and elk is separate and the combo deer&elk is a separate list from what I understand. I'll just cross my figures. Thanks for the info.
 
I did not check but was wondering if you can get on each of the 3 lists .
My understanding is you can only be on one of the three list. I chose Deer and elk combo because I wanted to hunt it archery for elk and then go back rifle for deer. If you could have gotten on each list I would have.
 
Well good to know seeing I did not try to get on all the lists. This is the first year in maybe 20 that I do not have a combo tag. I did get on the deer only list and sit at 1587 out of over 2500, well I did not need a tag this year but would have taken one. I was also wondering if you lose general points when getting an alternate tag.

No you do not loose your points when getting an alternative tag. I made sure of this when I got myself on the list.. Good luck with any hunts you have this year.
