    I’ve never hunted Montana but if it’s like Colorado September can be unpredictable up at high elevations. Warm one week snowing the next. One thing is for sure it’s never to early to start getting into shape. Had a friends dad who hunted Montana. He killed some studs. Good luck.

    Better cardio shape you are = the more enjoyable fun you'll have

    Congrats on pulling the tag.:cheers:

    If you're hunting high country get those legs in shape. You can do everything but get your lungs ready. It will take a couple of days for them to get used to the thin air. Thought I was in good shape last year for Nevada, but the air was so thin it kicked my butt for a couple of days. After that, things went well. Good luck.

    I have some family up there that are going to take me. We walk in but have horses to carry things out. We are about 1 hour away from where we are going to be hunting.

    Good Luck MT is a pretty cool state to hunt, just hope you don't have to rely on street signs, don't think there is one that hasn't had a box of shells flung at it.

    for use while driving up there or after you are there?
    Is it a state where you have to have your bow cased while not hunting?

    what type of terrain will you be hunting?

    lung busting cardio and a lot of walking,

    Make sure and check out the game laws of Montana. Last thing you want to do is risk breaking one by mistake. I know Colorado has broad head restrictions, allows no sight lights and up until a few years ago didn’t allow lighted arrow nocks or gopro cameras attached to bows.

    No substitute for getting outside and carrying your gear up and down hills.
