Unfortunately, my attempt to fill my elk tag with my archery equipment, was unsuccessful this past weekend. As I have learned in my years of bowhunting, only about ten percent of all the archery hunters are successful. Not because there is a lack of animals this time of year, but because it takes a lot more skill than just pulling a trigger. Ron Ashiem, of the Montana FWP, recently shared some interesting facts about archery numbers in the state of Montana.

Some hunters did enjoy some success this past weekend, for the season opener in Montana.

According to montanaoutdoor.com

34 year old Randy Rowe of Missoula, took a 367 4/8 class bull elk, this past Saturday in the Big Hole.
