Well wish us luck.. we put our names into the hat for Montana general deer combo....we are also puttin in for goat tags as well, probably a better chance at that, the area where we have access is some of the best in the state for antelope..so I'm told.

Stratosman Was just wondering what area you put in for Goats. I know a few places in some areas you might be able to get into. I live in the very Northeast corner of Montana. If I can help with anything, Email me at [email protected]

Hey CAJ

I have an acquaintence that's mother and father own 40 sections about a half hour from Miles City...he doesn't hunt but my uncle works for my friends dad and has been going out for the past 20 years or so. I have been told by my friend to go out there in the past, just never planned it out. Well this year I actually planned in advance and am riding out with my uncle, we put in for our mulie buck tags, and June 1st is the goat deadline I gather, so we are going to put in for that area. 40 sections and only about 4-5 hunters per year....goat city with some deer. Another guy I know owns a smaller ranch only about 1000 acres that the tounge river runs though, supposed to be great deer hunting, so we might hunt deer there and head up to the other place for goats...that is if we get drawn!!

I wonder what the chances are for non-resident deer buck tags are. Probably 1-5. I think that goat tags should be easier to get drawn for?

Thanks alot for the offer of assistance, I really do appreciate it!! I may have some ???'s for you at some point..now I just need to keep my fingers crossed.

Stratosman The hardest thing will be getting the tags. You have picked a very good area for huntting. I go down that way 3 or 4 times a year, and always see a lot of nice Deer, and the Goat huntting should be pretty easy to get. From Miles City to the Wyoming border is one of the best areas. You have an inside deal with all the land you have lined up. I have hunted the area north of Miles City before. Circle is a good area for Antelope. It is a lot of fun going out into a big wide open area and see for miles on end. Lots of hills there but no Mountains to climb. Have fun out there. CAJ

    • Early morning bucks playing around in the back yard.
    • Nice!  Congrats to you guys!
    • Well Day 2 was a complete bust. Warm temps and high winds along with a full moon kept any daytime movement to a minimum at best. Onto the next.   Day 3 we got plenty of rest the night before and we’re ready to hit hard. We started off on the bluff where Cole had got his cow and before we could even sit down we had 3 cows at 600 yards heading at us. We lost sight around 500 and figured they would move right up the draw around 200 yards away. They didn’t follow our plan and disappeared forever. Around 10am we had some animals above us. We could hear hooves on the bluffs but never saw them. We had lunch around noon and then started still hunt ridge to ridge. Around 130pm we were on a sharp drop of when son says ELK! We immediately hit the ground as they were only 100 yards almost straight below us on steep bluff. We belly crawled to the edge and looked into the timber. We could then only see one standing looking straight away from into the wind. I slide my rifle up in front of me and placed the cross hairs behind the shoulder. My first opportunity at a Bull ever. Cole had him in the binos when I pulled the trigger. Not needed. He dropped right in his tracks. Cole tackled me and both erupted in laughter. Both of us total rookies had filled our elk tags 3 days into the season. Not sure if we are good or just plain lucky but either way it’s been an unbelievable experience.  Now we had some serious work ahead of us.  We literally had to pack him out an almost straight up vertical cliff. I have one really bad knee...all those years of jumping out of airplanes in the military have taken a toll on my knees. We each grab a rear quarter and made the first trek out. When we got back I was hurting. Cole said sit down Dad. I got this!! He then hauled out both fronts and loins in one haul. Went back down for the head and did that too. As I sat and watched him I was overcome with emotion. How did I get so lucky in raising such a grateful and helpful young man!  He got back up to me and we both broke down in tears and hugged for about 15 mins. What an experience we’ve had. The effort and hard work you go through on these hunts is like nothing else. It’s been the best we could of asked for and then some. We took the morning off while my buddy went back out. We did some scouting this afternoon and think we found a herd for tomorrow to go after with him along with trying to fill our deer tags. More to come
    • Looks great. Whats with the tray of rabbit food there? 😅
    • Gold finches are still hanging on. All juveniles though. Actually had a red winged blackbird at my feeder yesterday. 
    • So, I guess the show has a new director, and she wasn’t a big fan of how the show would drag certain things on. That’s why she hung Gregory in the first episode. Apparently she’s the reason Rick will only have 2 more episodes left. She’s not even going to drag out his demise. I like it!
    • Last batch of the season. I picked the rest of the unripe jalapenos for poppers. It sure was a great year for the garden. Just have some carrots and beets left. 
    • Oh - so that's what happens when a pike hits the camera.  Neat.  Thanks for sharing.
    • Congrats and that sure is a beaut!
