Hunting without Tagging…Again…But, It’s OK!
Okay, so at some point, I’m sure people are going to think I am just out taking pictures, but I assure you that my rifle is in my hands or on my shoulder more than my camera is! When you live in a state such as Montana, it is almost impossible to NOT want to record memories almost everywhere you look, based on the beauty of the landscape alone. There is some insanely breathtaking land out here, and the terrain can change 180 degrees just by going over a pass!
Something to keep in mind is that yes…we are sportsmen, and we are out there because we actually want to tag the animal(s) we are after, but that doesn’t always happen. So, as I always seem to say lately (and I’m hoping I can add pictures of a nice buck or bull I harvest into an article within the next two weeks), you have to remember to enjoy the hunt, too. Just to reinforce this, here are a few reasons I very much enjoy the hunting part of hunting so much in this most beautiful state. I took the photos below from Friday through Sunday of this past weekend during my and Jason Maxwell’s search for coyotes, elk, bucks and some new trapping areas. We found every type of animal we were looking for, too–they just happened to be in a permit-only area, the wrong gender or in a protected area. Go figure. lol.
