That was my approach when I brought my 10 year old to Montana this past November. Took home a doe and a nice young buck we shot on the last day we were there. Saw lots of deer and my boy had an experience he’ll never forget. The smiles on his face were priceless and the meat was excellent.4-5 year old deer on public in SE Montana are not called mature, They are called senior citizens.
I have my doubts that I could turn up a four year old buck with more than three points in a week of hunting the toughest county on public and I have been hunting here for 40 years. For some one that is going in nearly blind it is going to be a monumental task. If you are coming to Montana set your sights lower, " I'm really just looking to have a good time and to bring home a deer" is the way to go.
