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.

good hunting for many species of game.
Bearpaw Outfitters has hunted throughout the state

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 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
