In Region 3, hunters were again met by relatively warm conditions for their deer and elk hunts on Saturday. However, rain and wind moved in on Sunday and that reportedly got some animals moving, giving hunters more opportunity for success on Sunday.
The highest number of individual hunters came through the Cameron check station in the Madison Valley where hunters saw moderate success. The Alder check station saw the highest rate of harvest success at near 12 percent.
**The Clyde Park station also checked 2 antelope (1M, 1F), 1 mountain goat, and 1 black bear. The station also checked several animals harvested outside the region (5 antelope, 1 mountain goat, and 1 black bear).
***Open on Sunday only.
