McCarthy, Chris
The elk were above me, necessitating a three-mile climb through a new growth of thick, 15-foot-tall lodgepoles. The wind hadn’t blown since the last snowfall, so each tree was loaded with snow, just waiting to avalanche down my back, filling both my rifle barrel and scope. Read more >>

Montana's Second Wolf-Hunting Season
Dehmer, Kurt
One thing I have learned from 20-odd years of pursuing big game in Big Sky country is that it pays to know your shit.
