Montana is just as appealing to hunters as it is to skiers. Any hunting challenge you can think of can be found here. The prairies and mountains of North central Montana are abundant in mule, elk, antelope, and whitetail deer. Generations of hunters dedicated themselves to keeping hunting traditions and helped to preserve the diversity and abundance of wildlife in Montana, making it a hunters’ paradise.
