Montana Elk Hunts 101

Jun 17, 2008
Hunting is something that has been going on ever since the ancient times. This used to be done as a form of survival, for food. Today, hunting has evolved into a hobby, a form of leisure for those who seek excitement. Fowl is a common prey when it comes to hunting. If you seek bigger game then, elk is definitely for you.

Some people may say that hunting is a game of luck, while it may be that to a certain degree, hunting can also be about knowledge. If know you where to look, then you greatly increase the chances of finding game. Before you set out to hunt for elk in Montana, keep in mind a few tips that will make this a dream vacation.

Don't forget that hunting isn't all about luck. If you know where to look then there is a chance that you will find what you are looking for. Familiarize yourself with the area that you will be hunting in by pre scouting. If you don't have time to do this check with the department in charge and they should be able to give you information.

Know what type of food and habitats elks look for at the time that you are going. If you can find their source of food and know where they will be staying then they can't be far away. It's also always a good idea to have someone with good knowledge on this with you, such as guide or hunting outfitter.

Don't forget to have the right license for hunting. Without a license you won't be able to hunt for anything. There are online sales available for Montana hunting licenses if you are interested in purchasing a license even before setting out.

It may be a good thing to check out the hunting rules and regulations that the area you are hunting in has. Montana has their own set of rules and regulations that you may find online, or at the Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks office. You may also be able to find additional information here.

Packing the right things is also essential. Some of the things that you won't want to forget are a camera, binoculars, sunscreen, insect repellant and the right clothing for hunting. If you are considering taking a wilderness hunt then you will want to take your sleeping bag along as well.

Regardless of whether or not you'll be spending a few nights in the wilderness you will still want to check into a lodge where you can relax after. If you're going during peak season, then it would be advisable to make reservations early.
