Opening weekend of the general big game season saw fewer hunters, but those that did go out were more successful than those in past years.

Here in Region 2 mule deer harvest was up from last year and ahead of the five year average,  white tail deer harvest was about the sam as last year and down on the five year average.  Elk harvest was down from last year but well ahead of the five year average.

All in all almost 2500 hunter went through check stations near Anaconda, Bonner and Darby. They harvested  118 elk, 35 mule deer, 67 white tails,  and three black bears.

This is the third season for wolf hunting in Montana.  Rifle hunters have taken seven statewide, three from Region 2, Granite, Powell and Missoula counties.

In Region 4 along the Rocky Mountain Front it was the same on opening weekend; fewer hunters afield but more success. The Augusta check station saw deer and elk numbers up from last year.

FWP officials are urging hunters to check the regulations closely as there have been quite a few changes in the past few years.
