A fair amount of years ago we just had the meat pole break in camp. There were four bulls elk on it and it was not a proper one anyway. We just finished stacking the halves up and I heard a horse nicker! I looked up and there was Jeremiah and our packer / wrangler […]


This is coming out of the The Hole north of Hyman Creek in Hellroaring. The original picture is better but I always thought this looked like a Charlie Russell print. I think we got three elk that day. The next day I came back up there and spotted a lone first year six point bull […]


Sitting here reflecting on my time spent in Maui. I fly out in a few days. What a great country we live in. I’m proud of it and all that it represents. I want to say something that is different on my usual stories on here! I grew up with very little in material things. […]

Winter 88/89

A follow up to last nights story, Winter 88/89! Sitting in the barn loft watching new Tennessee mules eating with the bull elk that came in early. That winter a big bull came out of the park from either Canyon or Norris that was named Solomon. He had a radio collar on. His horns were […]


This is my old saddle horse Spyder! This was Thanksgiving day about three years ago. I have spent a good portion of my life riding in -30 below zero. We used to have these late season hunts in January and February. Many days it was that cold and the wind was unbearable but we did […]

Animals Can Live Outside & Survive

This is me and Spyder. He is an honest horse! He is now 19, does his job and requires no babying. He’s never worn a blanket or eye wraps. He is triple tough. He paws snow for his grass when he is out on pasture. I love a horse like this. John Moore prompted me […]

Super Guide

I was thinking about something a friend, Becky Couture, wrote regarding Outfitter wives and I agree totally and I’ve written the same thing about Sue. But it made me remember my old guide Dave Poncin. Aka Super Guide! He is pictured standing by me wearing black cap and chasing buffalo out of our old corral. […]

Mr. Bob Loop

Good Morning from Hells A Roarin Outfitters! The guy in the picture with me is Scott Loop and the guy with the obituary is Bob Loop, his father. Both of them started hunting with us in 1992 and they came back for close to 22 years. The picture with the bull was taken last year […]

Bill & Banjo Team

This is a picture of me and a neighbor. I’m on decker flats driving Bill and Banjo. What a wonderful, gentle, honest, team. I used Bill to break many young up and coming work horses. We are in buffalo robe coats. I was working with Sharps rifles from Big Timber Montana. We had harvested a […]

Josh Bunger

Josh Bunger glassing. Josh started working for me in 1998. He is like a member of the family. He is a farmer from Washington, and don’t tell him, but one of the nicest guys I’ve ever known. He has beautiful wife Jenn, twin daughters and a son. Hell of a Guy and guide!   Respectfully […]
