    Oh I see. Early rifle hunt. There are quality deer in all of those districts. Lots of outfitter traffic.

    It is tough to just give out info without getting to know somebody first. Welcome to the forum, and join the conversation.

    Nice cabin!

    I wouldn't discount hunting a little closer to your cabin. There is legitimate backcountry near there, and some great deer have come out of that area as well. I hunt out that way myself often.

    Deer densities are much higher there compared to the districts you enquired about.

    On the early seasons, you have a chance at finding an older deer, which is nice, but you will likely see more elk hunters than bucks. Don't get me wrong, the backcountry hunts are fun, and you get to do it in the most breathtaking country in MT. Just know those hunts take extra patience.
