Big Game, Upland and Waterfowl

Hunting and gathering continues to be a robust and defining part of Montana’s culture. When the leaves turn toward autumn and the temperatures begin to fall, we put away our rafts and rods as the eagerly anticipated hunting season is upon us. Hunting is not only a Montana way-of-life tradition, it’s also a vital part of Montana’s wildlife management plan to ensure the protection of wild animals and their natural habitats. For those who love the thrill of the hunt, the hills and prairies throughout Montana’s Yellowstone Country are home to elk, deer, bear, antelope, mountain lions, mountain goats, bighorn sheep, pheasants and a wide variety of ducks and geese.

If you’re unfamiliar with the area, enlist a local outfitter to assist with guiding, licenses, regulations and seasons; and prepare for changing or inclement weather. Or, consult Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks for regulations and information on obtaining a hunting license.
