Kali Hunting Season Picks Up
KALISPELL, Mont. -

The snow can be a pain for those traveling, but it's a welcome sight for hunters.

Officials tell us it's really picked up in the flathead.

A slow start hampered the beginning of the season, where hunters say they were seeing very little activity.

Now that the cold weather has moved through, more game is active and moving around in the woods, giving hunters more opportunities.

Check station technician Ray Washtak believes that despite the slow start, it could turn into a very successful season if things keep going the way their going.

"Things are starting to pick up a little bit.  We're down a little bit on hunter numbers but the three main species that come through here, the white tail, the mule deer, and the elk, we're going hit out numbers our today our 17 year average numbers," Washtak said.

General hunting season in Montana ends December 1.
