Hunting Success is Low

The Montana Department of Fish Wildlife and Parks reports a lower harvest for mule deer and white-tailed deer from the long-term harvest. The week of October 24, there were 21 mule deer and 29 white-tails.
The Darby check station is reporting lower numbers, but biologist Craig Jourdonnais said the recent warm weather had a lot to do with it. He also said that the deer “rut” is beginning, and a few large bucks came through the stations.
This is the second week of general hunting season in Montana, and officials at the Darby check station noted 173 elk so far, with is much like a 5-year average.
However, many of those elk were from the Big Hole, not the southern Bitterroot Valley. Elk numbers are up in the Upper Clark Fork, around Anaconda.
Also statewide, 44 wolves have been taken since the start of archery season September 3.
