    Arrow Fresh Tracks on "The Front"

    This last year, you read of me doing a lot of work on the Rocky Mountain Front, from filming and episode there, to going to listening sessions on a bill called the Rocky Mountain Front Heritage Act. All of that is part of my effort to try bring attention to the greatest areas the self-guided public land hunter can go to find quality hunting and memorable experiences.

    The Front is one of the most amazing places in all of Montana, in all of the continent, for that matter. It is backcountry area like the Front that helps Montana have six weeks of archery and five weeks of rifle hunting, all with most of the state being on general areas. These areas support older age classes, provide longer season, and allow us to stay away from the limited entry draw found in many other states. The Front issues more bighorn sheep tags than any area in the Lower 48.

    I am passionate about these type of places. I know some day my legs will not be able to get me to the back corners of these areas, so until that day comes, I will hunt them and advocate for their conservation.

    We are having a prescreening of this new episode filmed on The Front, in conjunction with a large gathering to support the Rocky Mountain Front Heritage Act. The presecreening and gathering is being sponsored by Backcountry Hunters and Anglers.

    Should be a lot of people there, including a lot of backpack hunters. A good crowd to hang out with and swap stories.

    Below are the details. Hope to see you there. You might even win some cool gear that will be drawn as prizes.

    San Jose needs a direct flight to Bozeman. I'll have to patiently wait until Sportsmans Channel airs it. This should have been an hour long episode.

    Ben -

    That Grizz pic? Is that the El Dorado Grove just north of Choteau?

    No - that was Maximus the year before he was poached:

    I am one of the lucky ones that has gotten to call the front "home." 14 days I will be back out in the thick of it. Can not wait!

    Looking forward to the show.

    Nope. Not yet.

    Last I heard the investigation was not being handled well and they were looking at the wrong folks as suspects. Not sure where it is now.

    From the conversation of a FWP Warden Trainee I overheard at lunch today that doesn't surprise me. If what I heard was true and since he was telling his GF all about his daily events, I assume it is true, it is despicable, shameful, and just plain sad how some of the current crop of Game Wardens operate and handle themselves. If I only had a tape of his conversation. It would be statewide news in a second.

    Claiming 8 hours of pay and not even working for 4 hours, with his supervisor telling him to do it and signing off on his timecards, is just one part of that conversation. Infuriating.

    Not Game Wardens, but USFWS personnel.

    A bump to remind any of you who are thirsty and want to talk hunting, tomorrow night at the Emerson is a chance to quench your thirst and swap some stories. Hope to see you there. If you see me, flag me down and make sure we get to visit.
