—The final weekend of the general deer and elk hunting season in southwest Montana saw little change in hunter harvest success. Minimal precipitation throughout the duration of the season made hunting challenging, especially for elk.
The highest success rate seen in the region occurred in the Alder area where FWP biologist Dean Waltee checked a high number of mule deer and white-tailed deer. The Cameron check station in the Madison Valley saw the most hunters stop by. There, FWP staff checked 43 elk, 3 whitetailed deer, and 11 mule deer.
Region 3 will not be enacting a season extension.
The 2016 elk shoulder season in hunt districts 312, 390 and 393 will continue through Jan. 1 on private land only. Permission must be secured through individual landowners in those districts as in the general season. For hunting district 312, over-the-counter b licenses are still available. For districts 390 and 393 over-the-counter b licenses also remain available and a general elk license is valid. Hunting is for antlerless elk only
