Re: NE Montana

Not trying to discourage you....just telling it like it is....I'd go south across the Missouri.

FWIW, the surviving whitetail deer here along the Milk River took a bad hit from "Blue Tongue" this summer. I live right on the river and haven't seen a deer all summer. I found bunches of dead bucks along the waters edge.

The only thing that did OK up here were the elk out in the Breaks. They have the size and strength to deal with a lot of snow.

    That's the spirit! I pray that the hunting gods watch over you. Good luck and God bless! Happy safe hunting.

    Scenarshooter is giving you some good advice. If you will keep all your hunting South of Circle you will up your odds for success considerbly. There is a ton of Block Management land in that area. One last note, probably not the year to be real picky about antlers. Well maybe set your sights higher that a forkhorn, but I wouldn't hold out for a 180" muley if I were you.

    Pretty much anywhere south of circle. The worst of winter seemed to be located north of highway 200. Lucky for you there are quite a few ranches enrolled in Block Management just south of Circle. You should be able to find some kind of buck to shoot.

    Part owner in place east of Malta. After 3 years, finally drew a buck tag. I have been in contact with friends there and they confirm all previous reports. Horrible winter, spring floods, and blue tongue. Agh...... Hopefully I will find one survivor....
