Buddy and I are tentatively planning a mule deer hunt for 2018. We are acquiring points in Wyoming, but I think its wise to investigate other oppurtunities as well. We are also considering Montana. We are most likely talking rifle hunting, but we are also both bow hunters as well, so anything is on the table.
Can somebody give me a real basic rundown on how the license, draw, application process works in Montana for non-residents? Is there a point system for deer? I want to start gain points if possible to be better prepared for a 2018 draw.
What are the traditional/typical areas to consider when looking for mature bucks, say 160 or better? North, South, East or West? Are there good oppurtunities in the Missouri Breaks region for mule deer?
Any basic info you care to share would be greatly appreciated.
