Hello all. I am new to elk hunting. I put in for a tag for the 2009 elk season with my dad, brother, uncle, and cousin in Montana. Wouldn't you know, we got drawn. My question to you is what areas in MT would be the best area to hunt public land and not have to sleep in the woods. My wife is from the Culberson area and my father-in-law has a ranch out there. Sorry, no elk on his land just wheat and deer. We were thinking about the Fort Peck area 621 because my wife has an uncle that has hunted there a number of times. We would also like somewhere that we could take some time and pheasant hunt also.
Thank you for any advise and comments that you may share.
