BOZEMAN, Mont.)—Hunter success rates fell below average during the fifth weekend of the general deer and elk season in southwest Montana.

Hunters are reminded that they must stop at all check stations that they pass on their way to or from hunting—even if they have not harvested any animals. The general rifle season for deer and elk runs through Sunday, Nov. 27.
