How to Plan Your Montana Hunt

Montana Hunting Gear Checklist

Basic Gear You Will Need

Although some of the gear you need will be specific to your hunt dates and species, there are a few items that will be required for any hunter and a few optional items you may want to bring along for comfort.

  • Appropriate Hunting License - Call if you have any questions on what you need!
  • Good Optics - Either a pair of Binoculars or a Spotting Scope - Rangefinder models won't hurt!
  • Lightweight pack for miscellaneous gear

  • Hats - both baseball style and stocking cap
  • Wool or comparable synthetic socks - several pairs

When Archery Hunting in Southeastern Montana you need to consider a few things depending on the species. We give you this list for two reasons - so you don't forget anything and maybe suggest something you might have not thought about.

Rifle Hunting Specifics

Montana Rifle Hunting Season can present a variety of weather conditions from very warm days to snowy cold conditions so we recommend you come prepared for both situations. In addition to clothing, here is our basic checklist for a Southeastern Montana Rifle Hunt.

  • A big game caliber high powered rifle sighted in at 200 yards
  • Bipod - We have found the Harris Bipod to work the best for our hunting situations
    Either the 12” to 25” or the 13.5” to 27” is best suited for our type of hunting in Southeastern Montana
  • Ammo - preferably the same ammo you sighted in your rifle with
  • Heavyweight layers with a warm base layer - be ready for cold or warm conditions
  • Waterproof outer layers - it can possibly rain and/or snow
