My son has a friend who owns some property in the Ekalaka area and has invited us to hunt this fall. We have applied for our license and are very hopeful. We will be coming the first or second week in November. Would like to ask which week is usually better as far as the Whitetail rut goes? Also any information about the area or advice. We are not trophy hunters but just enjoy the outdoors. This will be our first out of state trip and are looking forward to it. We are from Mississippi. I am 55 and my son is 32. My son's friend has a place to stay so we will only be out fuel, license fee and food. Truly looking forward to seeing Big Sky Country and making new friends. Any response appreciated.
