MILES CITY WEEKEND:

We are very excited to be hunting Miles City - Montana’s premiere Old West town. This famous cowboy town is rolling out the red carpet for us with three days of western hospitality. We have been invited by a group of local stockgrowers and long-time ranching families to introduce 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 Russell’s and also participate in the grand seasonal opening of the Range Riders Museum with a hound parade.

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.
