Montana

  Hunting

Hunting in Montana is an experience unlike any other in the lower 48 states. Montana’s deer and elk thrive on vast natural landscapes. Hunters enjoy nearly 35 million acres of National Forest and other public land, as well as 8 million acres of land made available through the Block Management Program.

In Montana, you can pursue your passion for the hunt in settings that are the envy of any outdoor photographer. There are few states which allow mountain lion/cougar hunts, but Montana is one of them and has some great areas for hunting these cats. The state of Montana converted to a draw permit system for lions for Regions 1 and 2, arguably the best regions in the state for lion/cougar hunting.
