Re: When is the Montana mule deer rut?
My wife and I have real good luck around the 12th of November. That's her birthday and we always spend a few days in the woods for her birthday party.
We hunt central Montana and the second week in November has been good to her. I've also seen some big papas towards the end of season too, but the second and third week in November seems to be the best time to catch these guys in full swing.
