Slightly warmer temperatures caused partially melted and crunchy snow, but harvest success in weekend No. 4 was still generally at or above average across southwestern Montana.
The Cameron check station had another successful weekend for elk harvest. Staff and volunteers checked 52 elk, which is higher than the record 49 elk recorded at the same time a year ago. Deer harvest for this area was average for this time of year, with seven mule deer and five white-tailed deer checked.
Harvest in Divide continues to be slightly over the five-year average for that check station. Success over the fourth weekend was 11.1 percent, which is up 60 percent from last year. A total of 19 elk, 11 mule deer, and one white-tailed deer were checked at this station.
At the Mill City check station, hunter numbers were lower than last year, but success was higher – eight elk and two mule deer were checked.
Alder check station did not operate last weekend.
FWP reminds hunters to stop at all check stations encountered – even if they have not harvested any animals. The general rifle season for deer and elk runs through Sunday, Nov. 29.
