103 pounds! You grow fish big in Montana, D!

We have tall corn, lots of mud and tornadoes,  and mostly channel cats and flatheads. Of course, we have lots of tree squirrels, too. ;)

What's next to do, D?

 :D That paddle fish was got a year or two ago by a buddy it was 103 pounds.
Channel Catfish is what we have here and we have a fair amount but in the spring is when there targeted and seam most active.
Sturgeon, we can catch and keep shovelnose under 40" , pallid sturgeon are protected and we don't have any of the  white sturgeon like on the west coast.

That's a big one, D! My biggest spoonbill was 40 pounds.

I bet your sturgeon fishing is good, too. We catch a few here, usually accidentally while catfishing. Do you have a lot of flatheads ( my favorite) in MT?

  But I did not get a permit this year, a keep , permit.
I could still catch and release , I just cant justify that .
Anyway I would guess the fishing will peek this weekend if it already hasn't.
We opted for bear last weekend this weekend I have commitments elsewhere. The back yard is all tour up making room to park the new boat and... There is the new boat , It takes up a LOT of my spare time. Still a ton of work to be done.
Now that I work some nights I have every "DAY" off and I'm working harder now then when I worked.
I'll pass up paddle fish , but shortly here I'd love to try to catch ( PUN ) the end of the cat fish and sturgeon run.
Back to work ..

You going to shoot some wolves?

We try wolf once a year since the beginning of legal hunting.
 Once we herd some wolf but never seen any in the wild while hunting.
 It's a LOOONG season , starts in sept and ends in March.
 YES we will give it ago again this year !

My boy and I went out for a last chance bear hunt

Cold, wind, hail, and snow but the grass was very green .
Covered a lot of ground.


This time we where seeing a lot of bear sign anyway .


The higher we went the more snow and drizzle mixed with hail, nice...


I did not get any pictures up on top at 7000 feet not much to see, just snow on the ground, snow in the air, and snow in our faces.

We did run across an old mining community now apparently  mostly owned by the forest department.
Lot of old mines and excavation holes .











Good thing I had a "Logger" with me , needed his services .



It did not take long for the road block to be removed.




I know , I know , how can anyone having this much fun call it a "Curse" right?

Well Some place along all the "LOOKING" we managed to lose two sets of gloves, a hat, and a $800 gps...
 We did how ever find a huntable  bear, we saw two others but on private land.
We ranged the bear at 289 yards, I had my 4570, a doable shot but thought we could close the gap some more.
Wind was in our face and timber between us and the bear. About the time we made it to the edge of the timber and what should have been a good 100 yard shot, the "Curse" the wind switched 180* yup bear got our wind and was in the next mountain range when we stepped clear of the brush...
It was a very nice bear too, not Yellow but shinny BLACK.
Dang it .
