I have to admit I have been slacking for months now. I haven’t been putting out the content I should be. Life has gotten extremely busy. I have been volunteering a lot. After the last couple weeks I realized I need to dial it back a little bit in the future. I apologize for not keeping up the way I should be.
I never got around to telling the story of my trip to Montana this spring for bear. I will someday tell that story but for now I will just share some of the photos from it.
Through Backcountry Hunters and Anglers I met Ross Niebur. He saw that I was heading west for bear and offered up some help. His knowledge of bear in Montana amazed me. We have had many conversations since and I can tell you he knows what he is talking about. Ross knows his way around in the mountains and knows how to attack the challenge of hunting public land in Montana.
Ross grew up in Minnesota hunting and fishing around the north woods. Eventually he ended up in Duluth for college, he struggled to find time for studying with all the distractions in the area for great hunting and fishing. In 2005, he decided it was time to start hunting the western states for elk, and since then he’s made the trek out west nearly every year. He is a self taught western hunter. He has successfully taken elk, mule deer, pronghorn, and black bear in Colorado, Wyoming, and Montana. All of them spot and stalk, DIY, and on public land. Ross is a husband and a father.In addition to hunting, he likes to mountain bike, ski, snowshoe, hike, and fish. Ross is a member of BHA, RMEF, and Pheasants Forever.
Ross is working on a few pieces for the site all based around Public Lands and the issues we are facing around them. I am extremely grateful for him taking on this subject as it is something we all need to be paying attention to.
Thanks for understanding, I have a few things I am working on now and hopefully I can strap myself to the chair and get it all finished ASAP!
