My nephew makes a TON of money each year shed hunting. He's a college student in NE Montana. He (shed) hunts everywhere. State land, private ranches he obtains permission on, and BMA land. My two cents, look at Block Management. Montana really has their stuff together on that. According to this article, in 2019, MT opened up 7.1 million acres of private land as accessible land for sportsmen. When you start finding sheds, pay attention to the elevation you find them at. Then focus within a couple hundred vertical feet of that.

Thanks.
Yeah there are whitetail. Seems like theyíre a lot more spread out and prevalent the further south you go. In my experience the further north you go there are still white tail but they are more concentrated on the private property and farm fields close to town

That must be all the sheds from that buck in the back.
I think you found all his sheds for like 3 or 4 years there.
Two birds in the Bush is always better than one in the hand-that way you can always go to the Bush and hunt another day .conservation=Better hunting.
