FAQs for Montana Big Game Hunting

  • 1.) How much orange is required in Montana?

    An orange vest.

  • 2.) Is there a Muzzleloader season?

    At this time Muzzleloaders can be used during the rifle season.

  • 3.) Caliber of Rifle to bring?

    Never under power the animal you are hunting. I will never say, “that’s too much gun”. Preferably a .300 Mag is an excellent choice for all North American game.

  • 4.) How will I get my license?

    I will provide online directions for applications at the necessary time.

  • 5.) Type of scope?

    Minimum would be 2X7 with a preference of 3.5×10.

  • 6.) Bullets?

    Most bullets are good now days. I prefer Nosler Partition. I don’t care for the Ballistic Tip for Big Game.

  • 7.) Do I need a Hunters Safety Course?

    Only if you are 14 years or younger.
    However, Archery Hunters do need a Bow Hunting license from a previous state from past years to receive your Stamp for License.

  • 8.) Is there any hidden costs on these hunts?

    Meat processing and Taxidermy are other costs to remember.
