Montana Wounded Warriors had the privilege, once again, to have a couples fishing trip at the Riverstone Lodge in McCleod. MTWW’s Nathan Pross, Mike Kuntz, and Scott Parsneau, along with their better halves ;), as well as Board Member Neil Baumann and his lovely wife were truly blessed by the hospitality of the lodge’s managers Craig and Deb Greenlee and their staff. The food and lodging were excellent.
The first two days of fly fishing were challenging, with steady winds of 20-30 mph and gusts much higher. Still everyone caught fish as well as a sun/windburn. The last day we were there, some of the group went to the Natural Bridge for a short hike while others fished the lakes on the property. Everyone had a wonderful time and we can’t thank CVR Energy and its owner Carl Icahn enough for the wonderful opportunity they have blessed us with over the past three years.
Once again, Lisa and Bill of the Diamond R Guest Ranch welcomed Montana Wounded Warriors Tyler Tummons and Scott Larkin, as well as guide Jesse Shively and MTWW Board Member Bob Lilienthal. As usual, our hosts provided great lodging and wonderful meals in an absolutely stunning setting. Our MTWW’s are always amazed at the beauty and solitude of the surroundings. Unfortunately, partially due to the moist weather and numerous grizzly bear sightings, our hunters were unable to harvest any black bears. They hunted very hard and often, under the guidance of Jesse, but the critters did not cooperate. In spite of this, everyone had a great time and sincerely appreciated the hard work and hospitality provided by our Diamond R hosts.
