Hunting, Bozeman, Montana
Hunting huns and chasing time. Okay… gotta be straight from the get-go. I’m not a great wing shot. If the feds ever instituted a No Hunter Left Behind initiative, I’d be their poster child. On most days, I am a B student at best. The fact that I bagged a fair number of birds...

A new ski film to usher in the season. While Bozeman’s unseasonably warm October and lack of snow may have winter enthusiasts pushing their big-mountain daydreams to the backburner (some of the more zealous among us were already making first turns by this time last year), Days...
Fall's eight-legged neighbors. I wander out to my garage at odd hours to stare at her, fascinated and giddily horrified. She’s usually lurking near the center of an enormous web that covers the entire window: the biggest, fattest spider I’ve ever seen. Her grossly bulbous...
