another buck and bull in the osprey
Sorry for the late reply,
Thanks for all the input. I was starting to second guess myself a bit. Hopefully next post will be with a dead bear in a month!
This spring will be my first black bear hunt here in MT and I would really like to attempt to take one with my bow. This brought up a question- how much bow do I need? I shoot a older PSE Bruin with...
Reading the part about your solo pack out I relived a few of mine. The feeling once you get the final load to the truck is indescribable to anyone except for those that have done it. Congrats!
Plus one more!
I'll be up in the thompson falls area, or the snowies near lewistown. Depends on snow pack. It'll be my first attempt and i am pumped!!!
I usually take way to much. Prolly close to 100ft. Honestly I use it most for solo gutting, skinning, and quartering. Usually to tie the animal off to a tree while I'm working on part of it.
Collateral duty wildland fire with USFWS and volunteer EMS out of Eastern, MT. We are primarily IA with engines just because we really don't get many larger fires (usually <1000 acres) but we...
Even though it hit -25 this week here, for some reason I am thinking about coolers.
I saw a couple videos about making a Yeti style cooler out of just about any cooler. Essentially they just put...
Interesting, its amazing how California has changed in 60 years... I would have killed to live in that california.
Would hoof size play a role in B&C scoring?
How many antelope was this?
I throw some baking soda in my pack right after. Some of my gear gets a white residue on it and my backpack will POOF white sometimes but seems to be working well. Up to 8 animals.
Although I may...
Now that I have your attention:
With the wild/feral horse debate back in the media (WY governor suing BLM) my friends and I have often joked about having a horse hunting season. Many other...
After a lot of research I have finally decided on a ecaller, the foxpro wildfire 2, and I figured I'd pick up a decoy while I'm down at cabelas as well.
I'm looking at some of the foxpro decoys-...
So I've heard the late season goose action can be pretty good on the yellowstone in the billings area. Does anyone know if that holds true eastwards towards forsyth and what not?
awesome bull druss, beautiful color!
2014 Montana buck and packout. 3 miles, -15 below zero. Earned every bit of this one.
Thanks Hilleberg Tents!!!
I'd use this for back and front country hunts on the eastern montana plains!

I posted this in the photos section but figured I'd post it here and give a better story:
It was one of those mornings where you don't want to go. The bed covers felt like a hundred pounds of...
Thanks everyone again!
Yeah it was a pretty amazing experience. A gopro would have been great. I can only imagine what it would have looked like to see the bull lean down and look over me.
Hard to believe bow season has come and gone and rifle opener is tommorrow. I'm enjoying this sunny 60 degree weather out here in eastern montana but I'd enjoy some snow next weekend and about 45...
In my research when your 8 miles in and have been hiking/hunting/packing all day ANY mountain house is freaking delicious, especially with a touch of tobasco.
Thanks everyone! Good luck to you all!
Chased a big herd bull all morning, only to keep and got about a hundred yards above where him and his cows were bedding. Let out a few soft lost cow mews and this guy came busting up to me from...
