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.
I can honestly say that the Anderson Hunt is incredible! To have wounded Vets come on to a real homestead ranch and get the real feel of staying on an historic ranch and hunting some the most incredible whitetails and mule deer, and get to relax in the most wonderful accommodations, and the most wonderful family you will ever meet. My experience with the Anderson Ranch has been top notch and so much fun. A place to winddown and just be a part of other Wounded Vets lives, this makes it all worth while. The Montana Wounded Warriors that joined me were brothers, Adam and Nathan Strash. A huge thank you to Donna and Karl Anderson for your hospitality.
Harvesting Buffalo! It’s a joy to be able to see our veterans fill their freezers with quality meat, and this year we were able to bless Chad Carlson, Brock O’Hara, Josh Deering and Sean Kirsch. Thanks again to the generosity of the Keating Brothers and the Keating Family.
Once again, thank you to the Watkins for inviting us back to Trophy’s Plus Outfitters. As always, the hospitality was wonderful and the guides were spot on. Montana Wounded Warriors Matt Cox, Justin Moschelle, Mike McGouldrick and Mac Vosbeck were all successful in harvesting mule deer and Justin and Mac were also able to harvest an antelope.
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.
