Upland Bird Hunting in Montana

Upland Bird Hunting in Montana

We access huge parcels of land for natural, wild bird populations (something that is increasingly hard to find). Many hunters don’t realize that Montana is home to America’s healthiest population of Sharp-tailed Grouse! Mix in the missile-like Hungarian (Grey) Partridge and cagey Ringneck Pheasants and you’ve found some of the best bird hunting in the U.S.A.

Ekalaka offers a fantastic mixed-bag hunt of all three of these wild bird species. Our Musselshell camp offers primarily Hungarian Partridge with some Sharp-tailed Grouse mixed in. We happily provide our hunting dogs or feel encouraged to bring yours! We don’t take many hunters and we pay careful attention to our populations.

2 bird hunters to 1 guide ($2750 or $950 daily per hunter)  -OR-  1 bird hunter to 1 guide ($3250 or $1100 daily)

Montana Spring Black Bear Hunting

Montana Spring Black Bear Hunting

Welcome to fantastic mountain country bear hunting! We offer high numbers of big black bears with multiple color phases (including black, blonde, chocolate, cinnamon, and even a few multi-colored black/blonde and cinnamon/chocolates!). Our spring bear season is a fantastic time to be on foot in the mountains. Our bear hunts are spot-and-stalk, fair-chase (bait is forbidden in Montana), and occasionally utilize predator calling. Additionally, we offer hunting by hound by request.

The southern slopes, avalanche shoots, and old logging roads produce tasty new grass shoots that the bears seek out post-hibernation. The bears here are on the move, hungry, and in need of replenishing calories burned over the winter months. Our bear numbers are so solid that you might see bears every day of your hunt.

Availability & Rates

Lodge-Based 5-Day Spring Black Bear Hunt:
2 bear hunters to 1 guide ($3950 per hunter)  -OR- 1 bear hunter to 1 guide ($4450)

*Add an Autumn Bear Hunt (when in season) to any elk hunt for +$1000 (depending upon availability).

Notes for Hunters:
Your bear license can be purchased over the counter here. An easy bear identification test must be completed prior to purchasing the license. Hunting weapons can include rifles, pistols, muzzleloaders, or archery tackle. Black bear hunting is only available from our Two Bear hunting camp.
