Look to the central island mountain ranges, such as the Little Belt, and the Highwoods and Bear’s Paw ranges for top mule deer. The state’s whitetails are in good shape west of the Continental Divide, where Region 1 hunters can take either-sex whitetails for the first week of the fall season. In eastern Montana, focus on whitetails in the hills and drainages.
