Dr. Ed Nighbert took a great old 10 point that was in hot pursuit of a doe late on Saturday afternoon in Eastern Montana. During the week that Ed and I spent hunting the river bottoms rut activity appeared to be progressing daily. We enjoyed moderate temps for the area during our stay with no significant weather changes during our hunt. There is a strong winter storm just hitting the Eastern Montana area today. Significant snow and frigid temperatures are predicted. Hopefully the weather change will help get the rut cranked up into the frenzy level as Tecomate's David Morris will head for Eastern Montana later this week Montana with Eric Lundgren of Remington Arms for what may be a perfectly timed rut hunt for big whitetails or mulies, hunters choice.
