So I'm new to the public land Montana elk hunting world, but I just had a few dumb questions lol. So for where to hunt, in Montana do you get assigned a zone or do you apply for a specific zone? In my home state, for whatever big game you're hunting you just say which zone you're hunting in and that's the zone you get a tag for. Also, do most people camp out or do they make the commute from a hotel? And finally, does applying as a "party" change anything drastically? Any other advice or tips would be greatly appreciated as well!
