Hunting in the Hi-Line

Hunters from all across North America come to the Hi-Line region of Montana to hunt antelope, mule deer, white tailed deer, world-class elk, bighorn sheep and even prairie dogs. Other games like pheasants, sharp-tailed and sage grouse, Hungarian Partridge, wild turkey, ducks and geese are also amongst hunters' favorite games.
