We’ve killed 3 bucks and 1 doe so far. 1 buck and 3 does left. Was -16 yesterday morning. 9 degrees and 30mph winds blowing snow sideways when I shot mine. 375 yards dropped him where he stood! Bucks are rutting hard where we’re at. Here’s mine.

Why does it have to warm up when I'm there? 😥

Headed over 3am tomorrow morning. Couple days of warm weather then looks to cool down a little.

I’m here in SE. muddy dirt roads. 48°. Only 2-3pt mulies with does. Saw a young 3pt w 10 does. That many dies should have a mature dominant buck w em, not a 2-3yr old buck. No big boys.

The whitetail are rutting hard. No sign of mature mulie bucks. Never experienced it lime this here before.

This was the only wide buck we saw in 5 days. We're hunting public Butte country in SE. Warmed up like crazy after first day there. No groups of does to speak of in the buttes. They all appeared to be in the fields (private). Did scare up a couple decent ones last day saw them run away single does.

Been in s.e. montana for 8 days now. On friday the deer were rutting hard. My brother having missed a a nice 4x3 muley took an old gnarly whitetail, his best to date. Was a thick horned 4x4 not especially big but an old deer past its prime. My dad passed on many bucks and ate his tag. That was by choice he wanted a large mature mule deer or nothing. I've still got wyoming and montana tags in my pocket and now that I'm by myself I'll try and get those filled here soon.  The mud was as bad as I've ever seen it. Our group helped 1 truck who was stuck and when a guy refused to listen to good advice well we politely refused to help..... a did see a huge 3x2 mule deer one of the biggest body deer I'd ever seen. He was 50 ft off the road on public land. I did not want to shoot a deer just driving g the main highway but if I see him where I think he was going I'll take him.

My son shot a nice buck a couple days ago. 5x6 (6x7 if you count eyeguards ). I missed a stud of a buck yesterday. Seen him today at 375 yards but never presented a good shot. I have 3 more days to try and get him. Passed up 5 bucks today . Can’t get my mind off  the big guy.

The only time of year that I second-guess my choice of career after retiring from the Army is November when I watch these Montana rut threads... I used to do this hunt.  As a teacher, I just can't get the time off... :'(
