Montana is a beautiful hunting destination.  In this episode Clay and Kolby recount their recent DIY mule based bear hunt in Montana.  This was Clay's third trip to Montana (Spoiler Alert!) and he successfully brought home a bear this time!  Clay and Kolby talk about the pros and cons of this style of hunting and reflect on the trip overall.  Highlights of the podcast include: hauling mules cross country, the advantage of staying mobile with equine animals in the backcountry, Kolby's experiences as a first time mule rider, and even some long range shooting.  This podcast is a must in the "Montana Series!"

  • Judging the Size of a Black Bear
  • Judging the Overall Quality of a Black Bear
