We are very excited to once again be hunting Miles City - Montana’s premiere Old West town. This famous cowboy town is rolling out the red carpet for us again with three days of western hospitality. Spearheaded by our good friends Terry Haughian and Family, we have been invited by a group of local stockgrowers and long-time ranching families to bring the sport and tradition of foxhunting to the real Wild West. Not only have they welcomed us to hunt their massive ranches, but also enjoy their community and rich heritage. Many of these families also have clubs, bars and restaurants in town, so we will be patronizing their establishments. Many are members of social clubs and museums that they invite us to attend, including the oldest social club in the west where we may glimpse real Charlie Russells and also participate in the grand seasonal opening of the Range Riders Museum.

There will be a great amount of local involvement, as many of the ranchers and cowboys will be joining us for each hunt. Additionally, this is calving season and so all hands will be busy with ranch work and we will be sure to respect the landowners’ wishes during this vital time. We ask that you dress formally, but also know that they will consider it just as much of a show of respect if you choose to dress or ride western.


As we make our way across beautiful Montana we’ll stop to visit our friends Warren and Sue Johnson, and their family at world famous Hell’s A Roarin’ Outfitters. Their ranch and lodge is located near Gardiner, about 1/2 mile from Yellowstone Park above Jardine, Montana, surrounded by National Forest. We’ll stay at the their lodge and cabins, board our horses and hounds there, then take a ride out into new hunt country along Yellowstone with Warren (a Wild West Notorious Character, himself). Be sure to check out the Trophy Room! This is an amazing opportunity to ride some of the most breathtaking country on the planet, alongside one of the oldest and for sure the very finest outfitting families in Montana, and hopefully the conditions will allow a good hunt as well. If you’d like to rest your horses for the day, or doubt their abilities in the mountains, Warren has horses available for lease for the day’s ride.


Headquartered at the newly opened Headwaters Hops Ranch (formerly known as Mantle Ranch), Big Sky Hounds hosts the weekend of fun and frivolity. For 19 years, Red Rock Hounds has been hunting this country, and for 5 years (thanks in great part to RRH) Big Sky Hounds has developed here. Now, check out the new kennels and equine facility located at Headwaters Hops, Montana’s newest premiere event center. We thank Headwaters Hops, Kris Nelson and Kevin McKracken, for the partnership we have developed and their generosity in donating the use of the stunning Round Barn and Clubhouse to our events this weekend. Join us Saturday as we have our 5th Annual Hunt Ball, with the theme "Wild West Notorious Characters." This weekend serves as the biggest fundraising event of the year for BSH and your generosity in the past has helped create the superb kennels in which the Big Sky Hounds now live.
