I have never lived in Montana but I have traveled there often over the last 12 years for business. Like 6-8 times per year in all the big towns.

I have always liked Helena for the size of town it is, the beauty of the surrounding area and the outdoor and hunting opportunity nearby, the flavor of having a college in the town and the fact that it is not overrun with newly arrived Californians trying to change it into California like some of the other big MT towns. (I say that as a Californian who moved to Idaho.)

I think that I could live in Helena.

I've spent a lot of time in Helena and think it's a pretty kick ass city! Cute women, a college, and great hunting opportunities. Lots of beetle kill to keep me busy!!

so i gather from all the chat that unless you have an in with a property owner or you own land yourself that the duck hunting is sub par. I am moving out to montana in a few months to help my mom out who just accepted a job in bozeman, and thought it would be nice to do a little duck hunting next year and wanted to aquire some places to hunt, I am willing to go partway in on a property that someone would be willing to lease for the duck season next year. and also how does the montana waterfowl hunting licenses work? i hear somewhere that you have to apply for a license to hunt.

Once your a resident which takes like 6 months, you can buy your license over the counter. You don't have to apply for a general waterfowl license, just if you want a swan or crane permit. If you want steller limit every time duck hunting you need to become friends with Phutch. :biggrin:

Not anymore. I didnt limit last night. :no: :oops: Its all over.

Actually having private permission is just a great buffer for slow times. Theres fantastic waterfowl hunting on public land if you have the equipment required to access it
