Rooster Road Trip XIII - Montana Mixed Bags

Buckle up! Rooster Road Trip is back and this year’s theme of mixed bags in Big Sky Country will ring true in every sense of the term. From sunny skies and freezing rain to flushing roosters and skittish sharp-tailed grouse, Montana lived up to its reputation as being one of the most challenging and inspiring upland destinations in the country.

As always, the Rooster Road Trip crew only hunted publicly accessible acres that are open to anyone who’s willing to purchase a license and explore the fantastic upland landscapes available to all of us. Therefore, please consider helping us create even more access and high-quality upland habitat by joining, renewing, or extending your membership, making a gift toward our
Build a Wildlife Area Program, or supporting our comprehensive Call of the Uplands® campaign today!
