Bozeman Vs. Jackson Hole

This filthy rich ski town has had its eye on Bozeman for a while now, and it’s high time we settled this feud. Is it worth the drive? Time to find out.


Anticlimax at Ameya Preserve

If you believe in karma, chalk one up for the huge, retaliatory slap in the face that life delivered Wade Dokken, the wealthy developer whose failed Ameya Preserve recently went on the auction block. Reverting to its original name, Bullis Creek Ranch—once the site of over 300 proposed luxury homes—was listed with a minimum bid of $7.4 million less than Dokken reportedly paid for the property.

Ball Cap - Banner Logo – $15


O/B ball cap with mesh back. Banner logo on front; white mesh on back (fisherman, not Britney Spears-Ed Hardy). Soft cotton. Solid dark blue or green. One size fits all. Unless you're Andre the Giant or Beetlejuice after the headhunter curse. Or Alec Baldwin.

Price: $15.00
Select Color

Bottle Opener Keychain – $1


O/B bottle opener keychain. Use it to open beers on the river and impress your friends. Here's a trick: surreptitiously crack the top with your O/B opener, then put the bottle in your mouth and pretend to open it with your teeth. Everyone will bow before you.

Price: $1.00

Carabiner Keychain – $1


O/B carabiner keychain. This will become your favorite keychain ever. Clip your keys to your undercarriage at the trailhead or take-out and never again worry about losing them in the woods. In a pinch (ha), they'll work as impromptu earrings.

Price: $1.00
Select Color

Fly Box – $10


O/B fly box with five Montana flies. No, they're not the best flies in the world, but they're not the worst either. Besides, the box is what you're really after. Makes a great holder for change, paper clips, buttons, and all kinds of other items. Can also be thrown across the room with accuracy at offending pets or children. Be sure to take the change out first.

Leverich and Beyond

Went for a hike up Leverich canyon last night. Only three things needed for a short hike – dog, 44 ounce camelback and a powerbar. It was such a nice night I didn’t even take a fleece or a shell. Even though I’d be running portions of the trail I took my camera.Leverich Canyon Bike Trail View

The Not So Hidden Lakes

After a long day of work on Wednesday, I was ready to get outside. With so many choices nearby, it’s always a tough decision to decide where to go. I wanted to go somewhere I hadn’t been before, and after some thought, decided to head up to Hidden Lakes, suggested by your favorite local magazine (*wink).Hidden Lakes Trail Parking Lot

Prep School: Get Ready for Hunting Season

Many folks believe that procrastination is the key to flexibility, and although that may be true for issues pertaining to duties at the office, chores around the house, and any number of items on a “honey-do” list, this philosophy usually results in disaster when applied to your summer hunting-season preparations. The long days of summer tend to mislead many a seasoned outdoors person into thinking there’s no rush to get things together.
