Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks Region 6 Game Warden Shane Reno holding a ram from the 680 unit that a hunter had picked up. We spoke with Shane at a Game Check station and he showed us this ram, estimated in the 190" range. The ram was at least eight years old, but it was tough to get an accurate age with the amount he was broomed off. During this trip we had great interactions with Montana's Fish and Wildlife employees. The wardens were extremely helpful in extending their knowledge of the area to help us find the elk and deer we were hunting. Unfortunately we didn't fill any of our tags, but spending great time with family and friends was worthy of the 17 hours of driving there and back!.

Hello all. The Missouri breaks trip has come to an end. With seventeen hours of driving under our belts getting there and back, plus five days of tough hunting, we’re spent. We had high hopes that we’d be bringing back a couple cow elk and some dandy mule deer bucks. In the end, we didn’t fill any of our tags, but we had a great experience with family and friends and will plan on returning next year as we always do. We explored country that we hadn’t hunted previous to this trip for the last three days of our hunt. Although we came home empty handed in terms of meat for the freezers, we found country that we’ll no doubt hunt in the future.

Finding big bucks on public land is hard, and with luck and more hunting days success will come in the future because of the experiences and knowledge gained on this hunt. I’d like to send out a special thanks to my dad Scott Seacat for putting up with our hunting style and “cover as much country as possible” attitude, with a torn meniscus in his left knee and a fresh replacement on the right, he covered a lot of miles in search for his elk. Sorry we couldn’t put it together for you Dad… next year! Also I’d like to thank Jeff and Dawn Pattison as always for their wonderful hospitality, we’ll see you guys next year!

Keep posted as the Live Hunt nears its conclusion with two more weeks of Rifle Elk Hunting live from Montana. Two more weeks to find the big boy, wish us luck!
