Re: NE Montana
Not good at my bros place, but he's about 100 miles NE of Circle. The ringnecks took a bad hit again last winter plus huge hail storms this summer/fall that killed a few too. White Tail are pretty scarce this year, a few Muleys around but none in abundance. Things could be better at Circle but it was a long hard winter.
Call the F&G in that area they will tell ya.
Good Luck on your hunt.
