Montana Wounded Warriors went back to Dillon, MT November 7th-10th for another exciting hunt. Our wounded veterans stayed at the Riverfront House along the Beaver Head River. We were able to hunt elk, deer and ducks using this beautiful lodge as our base camp. We were once again blessed to hunt deer and elk with the Schuett Family. The sheer number of deer and elk was incredible, giving our wounded veteran a great opportunity to fill their tags at this special place.
The first to fill his tag was Richard Galli of Bozeman.
Richard, who served with the Montana 163rd National Guard Unit in Iraq, made a perfect shot from 450 yards on this 5 x 5 elk.
The next day Dev Stutsman of Kalispell, who had also served with the 163rd, shot his first bull elk.
His shot wasn’t as far (300 yards), but just as lethal and another 5 x 5 was down.
Later that day Nathan Strash of Kalispell, who served in the 172nd army unit in Iraq, shot two whitetail deer within an hour. Pictured with Nathan is Blade Schuett.
A huge thank you to David and Shelli Schuett for allowing us to hunt on their property for the third year in a row, and to their son Blade, who has guided our wounded veterans on so many successful hunts.
In addition to the big game hunting, Jason Baker of Montana Mallards, took our wounded vets for some water fowl hunting on the Tash Ranch. Dev Stutsman got his first goose and several ducks.
Montana Wounded Warriors would like to thank Todd, Lisa and the rest of the Tash family as well as Jason Baker for the wonderful water fowl hunting experience.
