“Anyone’s Hunt” shares lesser-known, over-the-counter hunting opportunities available to the DIY hunter. In this installment of the Anyone's Hunt series, professional hunting photographer Steven Drake and his fiancée Keren hunt general season mule deer in their home state of Montana.

Hunting general season mule deer in Montana is an over-the-counter tag for residents and an easy to draw tag for non-residents. The hunt is rich in opportunity, taking place during the deer rut with thousands of square miles to cover.

Follow along with Keren and Steven as they show you how to get the tag, what to pack, where to look, and the fun that can be had chasing mule deer.
