Trail Stewardship: Trail Fork Bear Creek Trail Maintenance Join Montana BHA for a weekend of stewardship work as we improve the Trail Fork Bear Creek trail for hunters, anglers, and hikers on the Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest near Ennis. Volunteers should expect to join us from 9am on Friday, July 28th to midafternoon Sunday, July 30th. Exact meeting location and weekend details will be sent out to all RSVPs one week in advance. A limited carpool from Missoula and Bozeman will be available.

Volunteers must be in good physical condition as we'll be hiking and covering some elevation to get to the project sites. The trails are used both by recreationists and hunters as the area boasts beautiful views and healthy populations of elk, mule deer, black bears and mountain goats. This is also grizzly country, meaning we'll be working in groups and taking the necessary precautions.

All work tools will be provided, but volunteers should bring and expect to carry their own camping/backpacking gear, work clothing, a water bottle, and personal necessities. Some meals will be provided including a dehydrated meal from our partners at Gastrognome!

There will be free time in the evenings to explore the surrounding area, and we encourage you to bring a fishing rod, binoculars, and anything else you need to enjoy a weekend in the backcountry! Better yet, come a day early or stay longer to float and fish the Madison river, some of the best trout fishing waters in Montana!

We are looking for 10-12 volunteers to complete this work, so please RSVP only if you are confident in your availability here: https://www.backcountryhunters.org/trail_work_project...

Gather your posse, whether you're a dynamite duo or a fabulous foursome, 'cause this ain't no ordinary chicken chase—it's a rootin' tootin' chicken roundup, and we're gonna see who's got the fastest hands in the West! Team buys is is $10 for teams of 2 and $20 for teams of 4.

Here's the lowdown, partner: when the clock strikes and the chicken coop opens, five feisty fowls will burst out like a shotgun blast at a frontier showdown. Now, ain't no time to be chicken-hearted, 'cause you and your whole team gotta wrangle them critters, holdin' 'em down like you're tamin' a wild bronco for a full-throttle thirty seconds!

If you're ridin' as a team of two, you'll need to snatch two squawkin' chickens each, while a quartet of wranglers will corral one cluckin' clucker per person. It's a showdown of skills and speed, so you better keep your eyes peeled and your lassos at the ready!

And what's a true cowboy competition without a shot at some sweet, shiny loot? We're talkin' cold hard cash, folks! The quickest chicken-wranglin' team will walk away with a heaping pile of greenbacks that'd make a gold rush look like a mere trickle!

Now, mark your calendars for Thursday night's hoedown at the Whitehall Chamber of Commerce BBQ, right at the legendary Legion Pavilion. It's gonna be a rip-roarin', finger-lickin' good time! And don't forget about the Calcutta auction at 7 PM—your chance to lay claim to the mightiest chicken-wranglin' teams in the land!

So, dust off them boots, polish up them spurs, and get ready to chase some chickens like you've never seen before. Join the wildest, cluckiest, most uproarious event of Frontier Days—Chicken Wrangling at its finest! Yeehaw!
