Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks is taking public comment for a proposed Grizzly Bear hunt.
This is always a hotly debated subject usually ending with an activist judge blocking the motion.

Thanks Salmonella.

This was one of the last legally harvested Grizzlies in Montana during a general season hunt.
After so many years there just might be a few really nice bears to be had out there.
Don't look to be as much white in my beard in those days.....

My dad was with me for his first western hunt.
Busted a 6x6 bugling bull on the way into camp and took these two mulies before the hunt was over..

Great memories...

Can’t happen soon enough. A local was just badly mauled day before yesterday. This happened about 1 mile from my home.

That’s badass. What’d you poke him with?

If I had a tag I know where there are some monsters.

He died from a 300 mag chest wound....10 yards, he stood up on his hind legs when he realized he had fu_cked up and took it in the chest....just lucky he ran off, I'd have rather had a 12 ga, with slugs....

Thanks..
Being it was my fathers first western hunt he returned home to Florida afterwards feeling as if there just wasn't anything to busting trophy game in Montana, he truly hadn't a clue as to how fortunate we'd been with the turn of events during his stay.

I'd done a good bit of scouting prior to him getting there, I'd found the bugling bull on a snow slide and left him standing there for 3 days bugling his azz off while I awaited my fathers arrival. I knew where to find nice mulies but would have never dreamed we'd get a father son opportunity with two decedent bucks standing side by side. With all the meat we had piling up in camp, the giz found us......It was a old Glacier Park bear that had been relocated after he was trapped while robbing cabins there just days before. That's what the story revealed when the numbers on that blue ear tag he was wearing was ran through F&G.

I'm betting it never happens. The antis never dreamed that their precious wolves would ever be game animals and they learned a lot from their mistakes in court. They have the money for the best lawyers on the market and we'll never see a hunt survive their version of a court test.
