A dozen University of Montana students took part in their first ever hunt this year thanks to the hospitality of a fellow pupil.
James Goerz and Mateen Hessami led a group of less experienced hunters from UM’s Franke College of Forestry and Conservation on a deer hunt in the John Long Mountains near Phillipsburg, Montana Untamed reported.
The hunters stayed in Goerz’s cabin and benefited from the knowledge of the two organizers.
Goerz told Montana Untamed they’ve hosted 20 to 30 first time hunters over the last couple years and about a quarter of them bagged their first deer as part of the experience.
He said the trips are about more than shooting game. They’re an introduction to fair chase hunting.
