Fall is in the air this week around Montana, crisp night air has brought the feel of autumn. The start of football and hunting season have signaled the end of another beautiful Montana summer, and the trail off of tourist season. I imagine the next couple months will be filled with hunting tales, and college football games. We already have some fantastic hunting stories from this season, be sure to check these stories from earlier this week:

We had some great hunting success stories. If you missed them the first time, be sure to check out these great early season stories:

  • Montana Bow Hunting Season Success! We have a report of a great opening week from a man named Randy who scored quite the trophy with this one…see rest of the story here.
  • Check out this story of a new bow hunter’s elk dropping over a cliff shortly after the shot. “The elk was starting to show the effects my shot, and looked to me like he was going to lay down when he fell over the other side of the embankment which had a 25-30 foot straight drop-off…read the rest of the story here.

If fishing is still on your brain, be sure to check out the fishing summaries from the Montana Outdoor Radio Show this week.

Here are fishing summaries for the week:

– Bill Brown at Bob Wards says the Bitterroot River is open all the way now and early morning late afternoon’s are best.  Rock Creek Marina has been good with lots of northerns and walleyes. Chancy at Snappy’s says the fishing’s been good at Island Lake on perch.  The Lower Flathead below Kerr Dam did well on smallmouth, rainbows and browns.
