A buddy and I are planning to drive out to Montana this fall on a 2 week trip. Departing from NH. Why drive? Because we plan on bringing the dogs with us and it is almost a 1000 bucks for 2 dogs.
We have both put in for the Big Game Combo license and would like to do at least a couple of days of Elk Hunting.
My parents live in St. Xavier and we both have friends in Billings.
I was thinking of trying Zone 4. (416, 446, 452)???
Would anyone be willing to share your thoughts? Should we be applying for special permits in any particular zone or simply stick with the General hunting license?
What should we anticipate, do I need horses?
Any suggestions would be much appreciated and we are both willing to drop some extra money if a local guide is available and is the recommended approach.
