Expected meteors at peak, under ideal conditions: Under a dark sky with no moon, you might see 10 to 15 Leonid meteors per hour.
According to the website, these meteors sometimes burn very bright, and also move very slowly. At some points in the past these were very prone to produce vibrant fireballs which were present in both 2015 and 2022.
These slow moving showers could be great for the photographers out there. Once setup, great pictures can come out from methods including long exposure to grab dramatic effect.
If it doesn't get too cold or you are up for a little snow, camping might be the best bet for seeing the meteor shower if one does not live in rural areas of Montana.
