Hunting MT
« on: August 30, 2017, 11:18:56 AM »
I get to go home and hunt again this year.  My friends have a ranch on the Missouri river. He has been seeing some good bucks this year. Last year we saw 50 to 60 bucks a day. This year sounds like it's going to be better. Good luck

I'm headed back to MT again this year.  I got a tag off the alternates list.  Can't wait.

Heading to MT Friday elk opener the 2nd.  If I work 9 days in September I will be surprised.  Made a decision to be in the woods all of September to get the full September elk experience in 2017.  Full Draw fellas!

What was your number on the list? Just a deer tag? I have a friend on the list.

Big Game Combo.  The first number I saw under my name was 80.  A few days later it was 104.  Then it jumped to 169.  Then I check the other day and it said I was 4.  So I don't know why it went from 80 to 169, that doesn't make any sense.  If I had really cared about getting a tag I would of called and asked.  But I was excited when I happened to check and saw it was 4 and then a couple days later got the letter in the mail saying I could buy a tag.

For our license and tag, do we just have to have that green tag that says general deer license? Wasn't there a conservation stamp or something?

I can't get them to load so no pic. Sorry. The rut has not started yet bucks are all bunched. The temp is dropping over there now so that should help. Mom and dad said they had snow yesterday. The deer population is up so don't worry you guys should have something to shoot at. Good luck

Rut doesn't start until the second week in November- usually. Everything seems to be a bit later then usual this year. Bucks are still in stag groups or solo.

I have a buddy that lives in Glasgow and he said today the little bucks were acting rutty.  Chasing a little, a little lip curling, and butt sniffing.

My dad and I are on our way home from SE MT. It was a successful trip with him taking his first antelope (he crawled through a cactus patch and about blew the deal with his hooting and hollaring - good thing the wind was blowing); he also took a nice 4x4 mule deer on block mgt and I after hunting my arse off and passing up lots of small 2 and 3 pt bucks finally got the drop on a decent whitetail buck last night in the pines. We left two doe tags unfilled just ran out of time and have to get home for work. It was our first trip to MT and we had a great time.
The lazy do not roast any game, but the diligent feed on the riches of the hunt.
