Props to a solid elk hunting partner

“Unsuccessful.” That’s how my partners elk drawing results read. In an area with ample tags, he was one of a few who did not draw a bull permit. Kyle is a brilliant pack designer at Mystery Ranch, the man responsible for the Blackjack, the Saddle Peak, the Naya Nuki and the Fuze, among others. I’ve […]

3– 2– 1– POLO!

For the past few years, hardcourt bike polo has been a Wednesday night tradition for bike geeks here in Bozeman. This year’s polo season saw a slow start with the loss of some longtime players who grew up and got “real” jobs elsewhere. But we can’t blame it all on them. Mostly, we have been […]
