Our Most-Loved Photos from Fall in Montana’s Rocky Mountains

If you’ve been keeping up with our weather in Montana this fall, you’ve likely seen that in certain parts of Big Sky Country, we welcomed early-season snowfall in late September and again in October. And while that definitely put a new spin on fall in Montana, we still had plenty of beautiful moments for our hunters, especially in Montana’s Bob Marshall Wilderness.

As many people may not get to catch a glimpse of fall in The Bob (as it’s affectionately called by locals), we wanted to share what this wild and beautiful area looks like this time of year through the eyes of our guides, guests and teams of horses and mules.

Coming back home. At White River, we only had a few inches of snow, while the top of the Continental Divide had 4′ we had to shovel through. After we crossed the divide and dropped to the east side, there was less than 6″ of snow.


As for now, we’re finishing up Hunt IV of the year in White River (which is early season rifle) and are getting ready to embark on our general season Scapegoat Wilderness Hunts from October 26 – November 30.
