Montana double
« on: November 22, 2023, 06:35:30 PM »
Here are some photos and a YouTube video of our 2023 Montana Mule deer hunt. It was a pretty quick hunt. We drove over Tuesday,  got to our hunting area with about an hour of daylight left. We glassed up 3 wt bucks that evening. The next morning we hiked in and I ended up shooting my buck around 130pm. We broke down my deer and continued hunting our way back towards the truck(about 4 miles away). About a mile into out hike out we turned up the 3x4 buck that my frien Brian shot. We got lots of great video of both shots.

Hope you enjoy the pictures and video.

Nice bucks! We were in a lot of deer over there this year but struggled to find mature bucks. Guess we needed sweet mustaches

@buckmaster_wa Thanks for sharing!  Looks like a great time.  What kind of pack sling are you using there?

Kifaru sling. It's one of my favorite pieces of gear. 👍

We saw about 60 does and 20 bucks in this day. Of the 20 bucks only 3 of them were mature. The only true 4pt buck I saw was the one I harvested.  I remember just 4 years ago hunting this same spot I saw 28 bucks in 1 1/2 days. 12 of which were 4pt +.  I hope it rebounds.  I would honestly love to see Montana Fish and Game implement a 3pt or even 4pt minimum on the east side of the state.
