Re: When is the Montana mule deer rut?
Len, if you're going to hunt where I think you are, snow depths shouldn't be too significant, but like Broz said, always have a shovel and chains just in case. I've been seeing lots of bucks lately, but smaller 3x3 and 4x4's. The bigger boys generally start moving around a bit more from around the 10th of November on. The does are going to be around the food and water sources, so the old moss backs will come out of the roughs to find them. My niece managed to get a decent, not huge buck yesterday morning.
