Waterfowl hunting near Bozeman

Postby Kellenmo » Mon Nov 07, 2011 7:39 pm

My aunt and uncle are gonna be moving up around the Bozeman area from St. Louis in the next few years and I was wondering what kind of waterfowl hunting they have up there? Honestly, I'm more interested in the big game hunting up there, but I'd love to shoot some ducks and geese too!

Thanks!

Honestly, in a few years you wont be able to find a place to waterfowl hunt within 1 1/2 hours of Bozeman. The big game hunting gets better in direct proportion to the distance you drive away from bozeman and how far your willing to hike in.
....its like taking x-lax when you have a bad cough. It wont clear up your lungs, but it sure stops you from coughing

As long as they bring a fat bank account and buy a nice ranch with good access they will have great waterfowl hunting. Don't you know how it works around here Paul?
I'm the type of guy who "cups" his hand over his butt, farts, and dishes it out like a soup kitchen.
