A little bit of snow makes a difference. The Darby check station has shown increased numbers in the hunting season this year.

Hunter trips, according to Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks, are 4,894 for the first three weeks of the season, which is 23 percent up from last year. The elk harvest is 24 percent higher than last year at 231, but is still below the five year average.

White-tailed deer through the Darby station is the highest since 2006 at 115 and 70 mule deer checked through is the highest since 2009 for this time of the season.

Fresh snow levels reached two feet in some of the higher elevations.

The general hunting season in Montana ends December 1.
