MT Milk River Hunt

Want to hunt MT this season. Have heard mixed reviews. Will be driving (yeas driving) from VA so need to be aware. Would like a self guided hunt for myself & a few tired firemen.

MT Milk River Hunt

I am interested in hunting Montana for Mule deer and Elk, and am looking for suggestions for mainly good mulies in public land. I am from Alberta, Canada and have received my hunting applications. I am a firefighter here in Alberta and looking forward to hunting the great state of Montana with my son and another firefighter. Any help sure would be appreciated.Maybe we could trade experiences for a hunt in Alberta?

MT Milk River Hunt

I live on the Milk River and Hunt extensively there. This may not be the year to hunt here due to the Severe Winter and Winterkill of our deer herd.

Montana outdoors: Stage set for deer deaths
By MARK HENCKEL
Of The Gazette Staff

So the waiting game begins for the deer of Eastern Montana. How many will live? How many will die? The remaining months of winter will decide.

Deer numbers were very high across almost all of Eastern Montana last fall. Hunters harvested lots of them. But plenty remained to enter this winter.

Now those deer are facing what many call a good, old-fashioned Montana winter - deep snow in some places, strong prairie winds and periodic dips into subzero temperatures.

Winter is the big reaper for deer of the open spaces of Eastern Montana, especially when it comes on the heels of a drought summer when food sources dried up and fat reserves on the animals was poor.

If you want to go I would suggest around Chinook or Havre as their weather has been much more mild.
