First season here in montana, compared to minnesota it's been great. Contrary to what I had read/heard about before getting out here, the early season was the best hunting so far for me. Shot a limit or close to almost every time I went in the first couple weeks of october. Slowed down later in oct, but then a decent migration provided a short window of good hunting. Ever since it got cold been hunting the rivers and shootin some nice greenies, but no crazy late season hunts yet. By the sounds of what late season is usually like I would agree it's not as good as usual right now. Hunted all public land so far.
