This is truly the backbone of all true Montanans lifestyles; providing ample land to use, for free, to pursue whatever outdoor passions you may have. These pieces of land include BLM (Bureau of […]

Upper and Lower Madison – 4/19-16

Last Tuesday and Wednesday I had some time off to get out of dodge and go get some more fishing in before run-off season is fully upon us. It is a good thing I did as we are currently sitting on the back end of a pretty solid week of sub-par weather conditions. As of […]

Missouri River – Craig, MT April 8th

So I’ve had a few days off recently and have been getting out and around, ‘settling in’ so to speak. I actually had three days off and took the R-Pod Camper up to Craig Montana for some floating and wade fishing. Craig is a small true-blue fish-bum town on the banks of the Missouri River, […]

French Team 2013

Christian's Brown trout on Missouri

Had an opportunity to share a couple nights camping and a day fishing on the Missouri with the ‘French Team’ this year. The fishing on the Mo was tough, but the Montana Wild Bird Paella and the Dickle-pickles were awfully good! [SlideDeck2 id=1750]

Yellowstone Golden Eagles

This week’s photo is shared with us from one of our previous guests, Mr. Brad Sheard. Brad spent a week in the Lamar Valley photographing wildlife.
