Heading into the final days of Montana’s big game general season, harvest numbers for elk and white-tailed deer are above the 10-year average on the Rocky Mountain Front, while mule deer numbers remain below the long-term average.
The numbers were collected at Fish, Wildlife and Park’s Augusta check station– the department’s sole Region 4 biological check station – and apply only to a handful of hunting districts on the Rocky Mountain Front.
Elk hunters so far have brought in 282 animals (120 bulls, 134 cows and 28 calves) compared to the 10-year average of 231 elk.
Mule deer at the check station have numbered 149 bucks. The 10-year average is 262 animals.
White-tailed deer numbers stand at 206 (143 bucks, 53 does and 10 fawns), while the 10-year average is 187.
The general deer and elk season runs through Nov. 30.
