Montana Hunting Information

Bearpaw Outfitters Montana whitetail deer hunts, and mule deer hunts are some of the best deer hunting trips available, these November rifle rut hunts are extremely fun and successful. There's excellent rifle antelope hunts later in October and November. The special archery whitetail hunting lease is in an area that's closed to rifle hunting which results in quality bow hunting for whitetail. Many hunters also get chances at small game hunting for coyote, badger, fox, or upland birds during their big game hunts. 

Location and Terrain

There are several Montana hunting areas with good hunting for many species of game. Bearpaw Outfitters has hunted throughout the state and they now outfit on a few of the best private ranches in Central and Eastern Montana near the towns of Lewistown and Forsyth. This is mostly open country with small hills, agricultural fields, stream bottoms, ravines, open grass lands, and patches of forest in some areas. This country is fun to hunt with high numbers of Mule Deer, Antelope, and Whitetail Deer spotted on most hunting days.

Hunting Methods

Hunting methods often include glassing and spotting hillsides, brush thickets, and feeding areas and then stalking the spotted game on foot. 4x4 vehicles are often used to move from one hunt area to another and game is often seen traveling between areas. Hunters may also watch water holes or watch game trails to feeding areas.

Temperature and Weather

September and October may frost at night, but days often warm up to 40 to 80 degrees. Late October to November temps often range from 0 to 50 degrees and snow is possible. Check current weather forecasts with the weather link on this page before leaving for your hunt.

Physical Condition

Physical Condition is not too important; nearly anyone can enjoy a high degree of success on most of these hunts regardless of their physical condition.
