We offer women hunters/guests an excellent opportunity to feel completely comfortable on a backcountry hunt.

Hunting experience at Broken Hart Ranch: Montana offers a special pre-rifle season for archery enthusiasts. Mid to late September is generally the prime rut period for elk in our area and offers some very exciting bow hunting. Our guides are experienced archery hunters and can do an excellent job of getting you on the elk. The archery season is the only season in southwest Montana where you will have the opportunity to see and hear bull elk "bugle" in the wild. The rut will be over by the time rifle season opens. Our archery hunts have consistently been our highest success hunts, often averaging 80% kill on bulls. 

Montana's general hunting season runs for five (5) weeks, opening on either the third or fourth Sunday of October and closing on the Sunday following Thanksgiving. Your non-resident license includes an elk tag, deer tag, or both depending on which you decide to purchase. The general season is open to buck deer and branch-antlered elk only. Moose are readily available in the same hunt areas but the permit for such must also be obtained through a drawing. Any booked hunter who draws a moose permit in the areas we hunt elk may take theIr moose at the same time for no additional fee. You draw the permit and we'll find you the moose! Click here for quick link country guide.
