Veteran, and newest board member of Montana Wounded Warriors, Chris Grudzinski took Jared Sharp and Jake Parker to Harlowtown on the Miller Ranch. Jared and Jake saw several deer all day long and decided on these two young big bodied whitetail bucks. They both made great long distance shots to drop these two deer dead in their tracks and fill their freezers with some much deserved meat. Chris had a great time getting to bond with these two combat veterans since they all served in Iraq together. It was a great day filled with laughs and recalling some great memories and they all shared and cannot wait to do it again next year. They ended the night with meeting up and having dinner to spend just a little more time together before having to part on our own ways. One other note to the pictures is this was Jake\’s boy Jonah\’s first year hunting, and he got to be there when his dad got a deer. Was a pretty proud moment for Jake and his boy.
Hunting and Fishing 2015
Montana Wounded Warriors took its annual trip to Dillon November 20th-22nd. This year we had five veterans hunting on the Schuett and Tash ranches. While the water fowl hunting was a little slow this year, the deer and elk were plentiful. By the end of the weekend, we had harvested two bull and three cow elk as well as a buck and two whitetail does.
Friday afternoon, after we got settled in, some of our hunters went out for deer on the Tash ranch, and Blade Schuett took two hunters to the family farm for elk. We saw some great deer, but were unable to get a shot off. But one of Blade\’s hunters, Justin Moschelle, was more fortunate and harvested a cow elk.
Saturday morning started off with Ike Zahn filling his tag with a cow elk. We went into town and had a great lunch at Papa T\’s, and then during the afternoon hunt John shot a nice whitetail buck.
We finished strong on Sunday with Nick Geissler and Chad Tucker each shooting a bull elk at Schuett\’s in the morning. Then, that afternoon, Nick was able to fill a couple of Whitetail B tags at Tash\’s, and John shot a cow elk at Schuett\’s.
The weekend\’s hunt put a lot of meat in our wounded veteran\’s freezers. We would like to thank the Schuett\’s, Tash\’s, and Jason Baker of Montana Mallards for once again showing our vets a wonderful weekend. This is one of our favorite hunts of the year, and no one was disappointed. We are looking forward to returning to hunt with our good friends in Dillon again next fall.
