BOZEMAN, Mont.)—Hunter success rates fell below average during the fifth weekend of the general deer and elk season in southwest Montana.
While temperatures have dropped somewhat over the past week, biologists report that with the lack of significant precipitation, big game hunting continues to be challenging. In particular, elk remain at higher elevations, not yet moving to winter range.
Here’s a look at the data from the weekend’s operating check stations:
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.
