Montana Whitetail Deer Hunting

Whitetail deer hunting in Montana is the best kept deer hunting secret in the west. There are excellent numbers of whitetail bucks inhabiting Bearpaw Outfitters whitetail deer hunting leases. What's really impressive is how many whitetail bucks per day have been spotted while whitetail hunting on these hunting ranches. Many whitetail deer hunters have seen 10 to 30 bucks in a day.

Montana's reputation for trophy Mule Deer hunting has overshadowed it's excellent whitetail deer hunting and most hunters are just learning about these under hunted whitetails in Montana.

Bearpaw Outfitters whitetail deer hunting leases have excellent whitetail habitat with timbered hillsides and brushy pockets for bedding and agricultural valley bottoms with excellent feeding areas. 


Trophy Quality

Montana Whitetails have a reputation for getting big. Antlers on mature bucks are often 16" to 22" or more in width and many have good tine length, mass, and scoring potential.  The abundance of food produces large bodied northern bucks weighing up to 200 pounds or more.

The Budget and Trophy Whitetail hunters usually bag mature whitetail bucks with 16" to 22" or larger antlers.

The Ultimate Mule Deer Hunt involves more time so hunters have the time to hunt more areas in an effort to find the very best buck possible.  This hunt usually produces good quality 18" to 22" or larger bucks.


Shot Opportunity

 Whitetails here are plentiful and bow hunting them during the dry September season over water holes and game trails leading into agricultural fields is very effective. Rifle hunting them during the November rut can also offer you a prime opportunity of bagging yourself a trophy class animal. Quality whitetails are more abundant in Montana than in most states, so it is possible to see several mature bucks in a day.  Shots often range from 100 to 300 yards so sight rifles dead on at 200 yards.


Hunting Areas

We operate exclusively on private property in Central and Eastern Montana.  We currently have many thousands of acres of private ranch land leased to ensure quality hunting.


Hunting Methods

Hunting methods often include spot & stalk hunting, glassing and spotting open hillsides and brush pockets,  or sitting and watching water holes and feeding areas.  Lots of good hunting country has good vehicle access, so we can accommodate hunters of any physical condition.


Deer Season

The rifle hunting season is generally 5 weeks long, starting in late October and ending on the Sunday after Thanksgiving.  There is always a couple weeks overlap of Deer and Antelope seasons, so combo hunts are available in late October and early November.  Trophy hunters love the mid to late November rut hunts.

Archery hunting season opens September 6 to October 19. There are excellent locations for stands and blinds just waiting for you.


Best Time

The seasons are set so that the hunting is good all the way through.  The opener and the next week are always popular with Deer/Antelope combo hunters who will want to book at that time.  Trophy hunters and those who want to experience a rut hunt usually hold out for mid to late November when the big bucks tend to be more visible.


Guiding Options

We offer the option of booking your hunt with various guide ratios so you can build a hunt that best suits your desires and budget.  We have 100% shooting  even with the group hunts year after year.



Motel Town Hunts: Stay in town near restaurants and shopping. Motels are only 5 to 10 miles from most hunt areas. Hunters pay for their choice of room and meals. Guide will pick up and return hunters to their room each day.  Non-hunting guests staying in town are no charge.  Budget about $50 per day for meals and shared room.


Temperature & Weather

September will have frosty nights, but days often warm up to 50 to 70 degrees. October temps often range from 20 to 50 degrees and snow is possible. November usually runs 20 to 40 degrees and snow is very likely which makes the hunting even better. Check the current weather forecast with the weather link on the Montana Home Page before you leave for the hunt.

Deer Tags are available as outfitter sponsored or general draw. Either way the cutoff date is March 15, so don't put off organizing your hunt!  More information is available on the Details page. Hunter Education is required if you were born after Jan 1, 1985.
