    Central Montana elk sheds

    Thanks for the responses. I’m guessing he stays on private a lot if he wasn’t killed already. We didn’t see any elk only older sign

    Central Montana elk sheds

    Me and my boy found this set in region 4 Montana last fall while deer hunting. I went back this spring and never found a shed in two days of looking. I guess we were lucky the first time.

    Colorado Unit 66 Help..

    It’s going to kick your butt without good mountain horses. Does your wife have a good term life policy on you? Watch out for warning signs of attitude sickness and you can expect heavy to severe lightning thunderstorms that week most years. Those mountains are very mineralized and attract...

    Looking for camping info around SE Montana

    There are showers in Alzada and Broadus, along with ice, beer, water, etc. Tons of spots to camp on public, just try to locate a spot on the lee side of a ridge that is facing southern and avoid having your stove facing into the wind, it can backdraft your tent if your exposed too much. I would...

    Can someone help me out with a MT B tag question?

    Correct, hunted on a 799-20 either-sex rifle tag last year and we had a really tough time locating elk in 704 on public lands. Likewise a lot of cow elk hunters were not successful.

    Montana - Which week?

    I have seen some dandies around late November, it would be an easy decision. I have had better luck on both elk and deer later in the rifle seasons, and I only hunt public land. Enjoy your trip to Gods Country

    camp pics

    It’s called a two dog night! The previous owner did that, and it really saves time. I think a person can setup a 14x16 in about hour and half.

    7mm vs .300 wm

    I shoot a Rem 700 CDL in a 7mm RM, those recoil pads reduce the kick by 50%. I never shot anything bigger than elk, but they mostly drop onsite. Maybe try handloading reduced rounds for the 300 WM. Good luck

    Montana Draw results

    I think the intention of this method is giving everyone a chance at drawing, not having all the tags go to the highest point holders. Do you know if this applies to Limited Entry tags or just NR general tags? I hope you can pickup a leftover

    Study: Elk generally unconcerned about wolves

    JlS, my comment wasn’t directed at you. Basically there are a bunch of opinionated bitches on here that know more than everyone else, and/or the commoners are not as informed as the select few. And we need to come to their level of reasoning. There have been about 20 threads this winter with the...

    Study: Elk generally unconcerned about wolves

    From my experience like Brian in Montana (only 6 years as a resident and hunting as a NR since 2001)the elk are impacted by wolves in Pioneers, northern Pintlers, and the Flathead valley. Mostly staying within timbered areas in smaller groups. Or large private ranch land in the valleys. Combine...
