I have hunted in PA since the 1960's. This was my first time to ever hunt outside PA. Montana topography is much different than PA's. The week was interesting and fun. Made a mental mistake the first morning. Had my bow hanging on a hook while watching one way, when a shooter buck walked under my stand from the opposite direction at 10 yds. Opps! after that I saw big bucks either at a distance or it was to dark to shoot. Then came Friday (the last day0. I saw many deer all over the area around my tree stand. Finally my opportunity arrived at about 8:00 am. A nine point at about 30 yds. My Montana trophy was mine. Everyone there, the guides, fellow hunters and cooks, were both professional and enjoyable to with. It was a great week of hunting in the northwest.
It is a long way from PA to Montana, so I flew. Could not bring my antlers back with me. Had to wait until the following spring to have them shipped from the taxidermist.
