What are your thoughts on Montana and all their late general rut hunts? Quality, buck to doe ratio, genetics?

Montana!  Yuk…Would waste my time.  Buck to doe ratio is great!  Mature buck to doe ratio is not.  Genetics are also not the greatest.

I've been on three different leases (5 years) in SE Montana and it seems to be very property dependent.  I saw 180" plus bucks 3 of the 5 years and killed none of them.  There are big deer there, but not in great numbers and you need good access to hunt them ($$). 

In 2011, I killed a 171" 3x4 and considered it a consolation prize for my time/effort in Montana.  I don't plan on heading back anytime soon.
