For the 7th year in a row Montana Wounded Warriors were invited on 3 cow elk hunts on the week of November 29 – December 3 at the NBar Ranch. This is only possible due to the Wilks family and their kindness, generosity and patriotism. Board member Bob Lilienthal was joined by Montana Wounded Warriors (MWW) Tyler Tummons, Seth Whitfield and Chad Grabil; board member Kristi Taylor was joined by MWWs Art Hazen, Ryan Morton and Jeremiah Barlow and board member Neil Baumann was joined by MMW’s Mackay Mathiason, Brandon Olsen and Kelly Niesken.
Due to the expertise and professionalism of NBar associates Justin, Todd, Russ and Dale, everyone was able to fill their cow tags and enjoy the fabulous NBar.
The accommodations, meals, and overall experience were once again amazing.
The hunters were in awe of their experience and so very thankful for this opportunity. Montana Wounded Warriors would like to extend our sincere appreciation to the NBar for this fabulous opportunity to bless our Montana Wounded Warriors.
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.
