I'd suggest downloading huntinggpsmaps.com. I've been using this a lot. I really dislike elk hunting after trying since I was 14 without barely seeing any. But since EHD whipped out my uncles deer herd south of Havre I have no choice.
So I've been pouring over maps and planning out my Saturday hunts. I look for forest service land where I can get a couple miles away from the road hunters.
I'd stay away from Helena in region 3, as a kid I remember during gun season things got crazy. Region 2 is where I'm focussing on. Lots of rough country with little access.
