How Great Is Hunting In Montana? See How We Rank And Who We Beat
For all of you hunters out there, here is some good news for you! If you live here in Montana, you have picked the right state for your hobby.
A recent study came out from Forbes, identifying the top 10 best states for hunting and Montana is in the top 5. In fact, Montana ranked as the 3rd best state, in America, for hunting.
There are a few things that play a factor in deciding what states are the best for hunting. For Montana, the fact that we have a small population when compared to the largeness of the state helps dramatically.
In fact, Montana actually has more cattle than it does people. There are around 2.6 million heads of cattle making it roughly 3 head for each person.
Another reason hunting in Montana is superb is the wildlife options. You can find deer, bears, sheep, elk, moose, the list goes on and on. Not only is Montana great for big game hunting, but it is also incredible for waterfowl, pheasant, and other types of bird hunting.
If you are not 100% sure of your hunting grounds, there is a good chance you will see more cows than you will have deer or elk. Wildlife has so much land to roam on, you'll want to make sure you plan enough scouting days before you head out for the big hunt.
