About a third of Montana is made up of state and federal land. Much of that land--assuming it is legally accessible via a public road, navigable river, or adjacent state land or federal land--is available for hunting. Mule deer, whitetail deer, elk, bear, and mountain lion are among the big game animals that can be hunted in Montana.

Thompson Falls, Montana, located in Sanders County, is part of Montana Fish, Wildlife, and Parks' Region One. In Region One is home to a number of big-game species, including mule deer, whitetail deer, elk, black bear, grizzly bear, wolves, and mountain lion. As for bird hunting, there are plenty of opportunities to hunt all three species of mountain grouse in Region One. Furbearers, such as marten and wolverine, are also relatively plentiful in this region.

Region One is definitely the best part of the state for hunting bear, mountain lion, and wolf. While the region makes up about 10 percent of all Montana land, it accounts for around 40 percent of the black bear, mountain lion, and wolf harvested, each year. In addition, Region One accounts for about 20 percent of the whitetail deer harvested during hunting season.
