Hey fellas good morning. So here's a long story short - I have a good friend who's aunt lives in Kalispell and has invited he and I to both shoot an elk on her private property next year. I've been doing research on the Montana FWP website and the MRS section of Eastman's. I'm looking for some suggestions as to when the best time to go would be. I would like to hit the peak rut or post run preferably, if that's possible.

Both of us will be rifle hunting. I believe we will be hunting in 1 of 3 hunting districts, either 102, 120, or 170.

Also, I believe her property bumps up to a refuge or reserve that allows hunting, so hunting public land is very much a possibility. I am working on getting an address so I can nail down more specifics. Thanks for the Help.
