Granite Creek Range, Tobacco Roots Mountains, Montana Hunting
Repentance and redemption at the Granite Creek Range. The shriek of a red-tailed hawk fills the air as I relax and settle into position. Spilling out before me is a series of targets: orange silhouettes the size and shape of a human torso, one after another, from 100 yards all the way out to 900. I rest the crosshairs on the second one and take a...
Mystic Lake, Mountain biking, Hunting
How Bozeman Creek was liberated. The year is 1973 and elk season is one hour away. Gallatin National Forest district ranger Ross MacPherson is lying belly-down in the meadow above Mystic Lake with his son and four other rangers. As the party waits, shots ring out from the nearby woods. Across the meadow, an elk herd prances nervously in confused...
Northern Bridgers, Hunting Moose, Bozeman
Learning what I'm capable of, the hard way. At age 33, I decided that it was time for a new hobby: bow hunting.

A climbing film filled with emotion. “Meru is the culmination of all I’ve done; and all I’ve wanted to do is this peak, and this climb.” –Conrad Anker Get ready for the edge-of-your-seat, nonstop, heart-wrenching thrill-ride that is the new climbing film Meru. Meru chronicles the two attempts of Conrad Anker, Jimmy Chin, and Renan Ozturk to climb...
Story Under the Stars is back. The plane bore down on Cary Grant as the sound of whirling propellers filled the air. It got closer and louder, but at the last second, Grant dodged the diving crop-duster as it flew past. I turned around, half-expecting to see its rudder disappearing into the night sky. I saw trees and stars, but no plane. I...
