Ray Round from Missoula sent this picture of his friend Mick Bradway from Anchorage Alaska formerly from Townsend Montana.
Mick shot this nice Montana bull on opening weekend. The weather for the most part has been nice since the opening of Montana’s General Rifle Season for Deer and Elk and hunters are having some good success filling their tags.
We are at the end of the third week of big game season and elk and white-tail deer harvest numbers are above average. Mule deer are below average, especially the buck harvest outcome so far.
John Peterson of H and H Meats in Missoula told montanaoutdoor.com that his business is the best its been in a few years, especially with elk, backing up these calculations.
