Considering A Hunting Or Fishing Trip Out West? Do Both In Montana

Posted on: 12 April 2016

If you have been looking to do a hunting and fishing trip at the same time, but you aren't sure where to go to have great success, Montana is a great choice. The autumn season provides bountiful hunting and fishing, along with the beautiful scenery of the wilderness. You can choose to hunt and fish in areas that are owned privately with the help of charters and tours, or you can instead try out your luck at the local parks and National Forests. Here are a few things you'll want to consider when you start to plan your trips.


If you want to hunt deer, elk and antelope, Montana has the wildlife and big game you're looking for. Getting the permits, knowing what property to hunt on, and picking the best time of the season can be difficult if you aren't familiar with the area, or if you don't live in Montana.

Hiring a big game hunting tour company to take you out will make planning the trip easy, and you won't have to worry about a thing. Often the hunting tour company will have a location for your overnight accommodations, hunting supplies and gear for you to use, and a service provider for preserving your meat or animal head.


A fly fishing trip in the freshwater lakes and rivers around Montana is great for any sportsman looking to catch a variety of trout. Large trout, rainbow trout, and cruising brown trout are popular sports fish because they are fighters. There are several charters that offer yearlong touring options, but the fall is an ideal time to catch some trout while they're out spawning. The charter guides know where the best areas are to catch the trophy fish you're looking for. The charters also have the professional equipment for fishing, and charters large enough to accommodate large groups for Montana fly fishing trips.

If you are considering pricing out a trip to enjoy your favorite outdoor sports and you think Montana is going to be a top contender on your list, try to find an area where you can both fish and hunt at the same time. You can make the arrangements with the fishing charter company and the hunting tour professionals, to make accommodations in a neutral location where it's easy to access both your fishing and hunting areas. This will be a trip for the ultimate sportsman who seeks action and fun.
