Default Public Hunting

I've used a 270 to shoot an elk with and have never used anything else for Mule deer. Public hunting opening day expect to see a lot of people out hunting with you. If you go after that in the season, most of the deer will have been pushed off the public land. If you see something you might want take it, you probably won't get another chance. You might even want to start thinking about where you are staying depending on where you are going. Tags are always hard to come by. Not sure what you are doing, but Montana you can go in as a group, that way you all get or nobody gets. Not sure if it increases you odds, but then you don't have the problem of only two getting tags. If you are looking at Montana there are some other options you can do, but if not they wouldn't do you any good. Send me an email if you need more info.
