Montana Big Game Trophy Hunting Trips
Montana: A Leading Destination for Hunting Big and Small Game
Montana has also long been recognized as a leading destination for upland bird hunting. Turkey, ring-neck pheasant, sharp-tail grouse, Hungarian partridge, sage grouse, ruffed grouse, blue grouse and chukar partridge are present and in good numbers.
It’s common to shoot several species of birds the same day, and you will occasionally shoot more than one species from a single covey rise. Not only will you find large covey of birds, you’ll be hunting in absolutely stunning settings.
Perfect your shot on our world-class sporting clays course or rifle/pistol range before you head out to bag your first bear, elk, or ten-point buck.
The following are the seasons for the hunting available in Montana (Archery only dates start earlier). The concierge can point you in the right direction to get you hunting licenses and introduced to a Montana outfitter. Most deadlines are in the Spring of that hunting year.
