_Montana - It's such a big state, meaning bird numbers seemingly fluctuate across it every year, and this year is no different. But there are birds to be had and there's access (i.e. Block Management). More than anything, though, this is an "experience" hunt that every pheasant hunter should do at least once in his/her lifetime. From the openness of eastern Montana to the Rocky Mountain backdrop as you move westward, the vistas cannot be beat. Throw in Huns and sharpies as bonus birds while chasing ringnecks, and you'll think you've died and gone to heaven.
