Montana's general, five-week long, elk hunting season opens Oct. 26. Overall, Montana's elk populations are in good shape, according to Montana FWP.
Once again this season, Montana hunters will pursue elk under some very favorable regulations although the weather could play a big part in hunter success.
Depending on the hunting district regulations hunters can pursue brow-tined bull elk, spike bull elk, either-sex elk, or antlerless elk.
