    Montana nonresident spring turkey and black bear hunting suspended

    So they want us to hole up in a hotel for 14 days with food being delivered to us, but not go into the woods for fear of contamination. Yet they are still selling non res tags???

    Truck Topper: Leer vs A.R.E.

    Looking at getting one this spring. Never thought i would have one. Always seemed like a old guy thing. But traveling so much now shooting competitively and traveling hunting a lot it sure would be handy to have everything sealed up in the back and not worry about someone stealing something as easy.

    decker fire unit 82/86 salida area

    How is the decker fire going to affect the deer hunting in the units? With the northern 1/3 of the unit being completely closed and that being where i had focused most of my aerial scouting and planning this has really hurt my plans!

I am about as much of a walker and grass is always greener over the next ridge type of guy. but i found that hiking was a waste of time. the good bucks are too spread out...

    co deer 82 3rd rifle

    Yeah having no foothills or any sort of gradual climb is very intimidating. Historical november temps are 40-15 average in the valley. Not sure how brisk that will be at 10-11k It looks like there are trails to get around on BLM to access different drainages with most of them having a hiking...

    co deer 82 3rd rifle

    well i have 6 points and my friend has 2 and it has traditionally been drawn 50% with 1 point. I really wanted to hunt 80/81 but he couldn't be certain to draw a tag. We will go regardless with him buying a elk tag. The sheer size of the unit and the way it rises out of flat nothing to 5k' is a...
