Hey Guys & Gals,
You lucky Souherners get to keep fishing, but up here in the Northeast Canyon fishing is over, so I went on a traditional bow hunt in Montana. Here is the video of my September Montana Elk & Mule Deer.
Hope you enjoy it...Go to this link:

OK time for Q&A........
Why didn't I see any water around? It looks dry. Where is the source of water for the animals???
On a trip like that what is the success rate?
Did you go it alone on this trip or is it 1 guide per sportsman?
Do they also hunt Elk in the mountainous terrain in the same area or is that a different breed of Elk?
Enjoyed the video :thumbsup:

Your right, there was no or little water around. The cattle did have some watering holes but minimal ground water from any streams. The moisture came from the cattle grass and vegetation they eat. Ususally, there would have been 20 or more bulls in this area. Unfortunately, the forest fires we all heard about had cut off the path from the river where they migrate to during the summer months. Yes, it was just me and a guide Heath, who was awesome. 30,000 acres all to us. Real tough to beleive how amny nooks and craneys there are in the Breaks for animals to hide. The antelope would only be huntable using a decoy and a lot of luck or a ground bling on one of the two watering holes. The blind is not for me. The mountains that we showed on the edge were a shear break line and the same type of terrain was on the other side that Cabelas just bought. I made good freinds with the guyide and he and I are going to do an African hunt next year together as well as I am taking him tuna fishing this coming year for a Spot & Stalk Black Bear hunt in his home area where there are big mountains to hunt. Lots of color phases he said. He will be at the Springfield Mass. Sportsmans Show and I will be going up to hang out with him. The elk are all the same breed. Although it was tough hunting, it was a great time, i hunted my ass off and never stopped from 4:30Am till 7-8PM each night. Cold at night 20-degrees and near 90 during the day. Capt. Marty
