Does anyone know if applying as a party increases your odds in drawing a non-resident general elk tag?

General Elk Hunting / Bear safe or not
« on: August 23, 2018, 02:42:45 PM »
last year in Montana we got fined for not being safe in camp.  The ranger said that even an empty freezer is consider not bear safe which is why we got the ticket. We had empty freezers setting outside unattended. My question is. Is there a way to make freezers bear safe with have a trailer to put them in.  Is a lock to prevent bears from getting into the freezer going to work?

So we hunted Montana the last 3 years and have bought leftover tags each year. Well this is the first year they have ever sold out of out of state tags. Need a back up plan quickly. Idaho or Colorado or anything else?

General Elk Hunting / Walking across state lines to hunt elk
« on: May 13, 2016, 09:10:15 AM »
Has anyone ever parked in one state and walked into another state because it was a closer walk to where you hunted in the other state?  Do you need a hunting license in both states?

General Elk Hunting / Snow after youshoot a bull
« on: September 21, 2013, 03:23:05 PM »
I was in Montana last week on my first elk hunt and shot a nice 6x6.  10 minutes after I shot him it started snowing and snowed 4 inches in the next 1/2 hour.  Not being able to find my arrow or any blood because the snow had the ground covered pretty good we just started walking in a grid around the area but never could find him.  Has anyone ever had this happen to them?  What do you do?  The best part is the next morning we went back in there to look for him some more and the other bull in the group was still in there bugling.  We got in on him and my buddy missed him at 21 yards.  Hit a twig.  He was the biggest bull we saw all week.  Maybe a 330 6x6.  Instead of coming home with 2 6x6 bulls we came home empty handed!!!

Elk Hunting Tips & Tactics / Sept. 13 through the 21st
« on: May 21, 2013, 10:33:40 AM »
I will be in sw montana Sept. 13 through the 21st.  I'm pretty sure the full moon is on the 19th.  I wanted to be out there earlier in the season but this is when I could get off work.  This is my first trip to montana, how is the hunting pressure this time of year?  What is the best way to hunt just before and during the full moon?  Any tips on how or even where a good spot to check out would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks
