As I indicated in the previous article, Central Montana contains quite a few limited draw areas. The herds are also lower density herds that are not widely distributed throughout Regions 4 and 5, but mostly in clumps or pockets that are seemingly isolated from the next pocket of elk. The last article addressed the general permit areas in Central Montana, this one will cover some of the limited permit areas.
Hunting Districts 401, 403, 410, 411, 412, 417, 420, 426, 441, 445, 447, 450, 455, 500, 502, 510, 511, 520, 530, 570, 575, 580, and 590 are limited draw bull elk units. Now, not all of these areas are worth bothering with for a DIY hunter. For starters, let’s eliminate of few of these right off the bat, as they just don’t have enough public land to matter.
