With the close of the general big-game hunting season, hunters can still turn to hunting many upland game bird species in Montana.
Pheasant, partridge, sharp-tailed grouse and turkey hunting continues until Jan. 1. The season for mountain grouse closes Dec. 15. Montana’s sage grouse season closed Nov. 1. Check the regulations for exceptions for the partridge season.
Hunters interested in hunting on lands enrolled in Montana’s Upland Game Bird Habitat Enhancement Program can find details and locations on the Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks Web site at fwp.mt.gov on the Habitat page under Wildlife Habitat.
