This year is the first Ft. Harrison has opened up more than 3,000 acres for five purple heart recipients to hunt.
Johnnie Sweeten and Bob Mattson are both Vietnam veterans from Great Falls and hunted Ft. Harrison together. Coincidentally, Sweeten was the first qualifying veteran to sign up for the program and the first to make good on the oportunity. He harvested a 3×3 mule deer buck on Tuesday, Montana Untamed reported.
State restrictions limit the hunt to archery equipment, shotguns and muzzleloaders. The organizer of the hunt plans to contact Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks about opening up the program to rifle hunting next year.
Way to get it done Johnnie.
