Pronghorn

Mr. Gose’s bunkhouse was small but contained two plywood bunks with mattresses, a wood-burning fireplace, a propane stove on which to cook, a small table with chairs and a dusty couch where a third person could sleep – and running water for the sink. It was a modern-day line shack, no doubt used every time the cattle needed to be worked. In all directions, the Wyoming prairie stretched as far as the eye could see.

Summer's Significance

A half-dozen years ago, I introduced my sweetheart to big game hunting. She nudged me into upland bird hunting and started me skiing – more specifically, alpine ski racing.

Cross-Country Coyote Tactics

I get a great deal of pride and pleasure from leaving the hunting masses behind – hiking until my truck is a speck on the horizon – when hunting the South Dakota grasslands for prairie grouse each fall.

Thomas Grill's Oddball Bull

Despite being busy with work, Thomas Grill headed into Wyoming’s unit 21 late in the afternoon, with bow in hand, to take advantage of the rut. The hunt was on public land on which he had hunted many times in the past, but the weather was hot, muggy and not very conducive to hunting. Thomas had his girlfriend, Jamilee Scandle, along for the adventure, and they hiked into the hills to check some locations where elk had been encountered in previous years.

Bighorn Whitetails

With more than a dozen peaks reaching beyond 12,000 feet in elevation, and a few ascending above 13,000, the Bighorn Mountains rise from the Wyoming prairie just northwest of Casper before petering out along the Bighorn River across the state line south of Billings, Montana. To disinterested passers-by, the Bighorns may appear to have been peeled from the Rockies like a torn toenail.
