25contender started a sticky about SW Montana hunting that might apply. The terrain, weather, etc. are very similar to his description. It is pretty well written. The Bridger-Teton National Forest you mentioned for your elk hunt is also pretty popular for mule deer, and if you draw is also a pretty good area for moose and sheep. There is lots of good advise around this site to search through. The deer have a little bit of a tough time of late, but it is still a good area, I think. There can be lots of hunters, but there is lots of country to cover, too. The bear, wolf, and cougar situation is something to look out for. Well, have a good trip and good luck.
