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... :'(

I feel you there. My busy time starts mid October with first deadline of November 20th  >:(

Finally found a decent buck. 510yds, head on chest shot. Found 200grn eld-x bulletís outter copper jacket on off side hide while skinning. Gonna weigh jacket when i get home and see how much mass it lost. .300RUM did itís job nonetheless. He went 7yds. He was with one doe. Smaller bucks have the big groups of does.

You guys are killin it. Iím here now and have been for the last two days with 4 more to go. Passed on my first legal buck ever! Didnít think Iíd ever do that, but it was a smallish 3 pt and I just wasnít ready for my solo MT to be over yet! Definitely been an adventure! Iíve never seen mud like this before. Couple close calls, but so far havenít gotten stuck yet. Seen plenty who have. Tomorrow is a new day! Good luck and be safe!

Good luck Tbob. Ya, dirt roads are muddy and that stuff is no joke. Be careful in it. Good luck. Binos and spotting scopes are your best friend. Glass glass and glass more. You will find him👍

Havenít hunted w my son in ten years. Last time he was 11 and now heís 21. He has never shot a buck...only two blacktail does. I was proud that he passed on some bucks, including this one yesterday, but after seeing it again this morning  he decided to take it.

I stopped the truck and he got out and set up. I ranged the buck and yelled out yardage to him. The buck was at 250yds but he was chasing a doe and wound up at 350yds. The buck was facing left and there was a 15mph wind from left to right. I told him to hold left, so he held on the front of the buckís chest and let the .300 win mag bark. The buck didnít act like he was hit, instead he ran towards doe but only made it a out 10yds and piled up.

After hi-fives and hugs we went and found his buck. Perfect shot right behind the shoulder. So proud!

Itís a target rich environment for sure
Nice job nice deer
Keep the wind in your hair, and the sun at your back.


A gun is a tool, Marion, no better or no worse than any other tool, an axe, a shovel or anything. A gun is as good or as bad as the man using it. Remember that.

Anyone that thinks a Glock is better than a 1911 paints his toenails.
