Once an avid bow hunter, Chris hasn’t hunted a Montana big game animal in 9 years. He dedicates his time and knowledge to helping other hunters achieve success. His only personal hunting consists of picking off those pesky predators.

Chris has implemented an extensive game management plan to help create a better environment for the wildlife. This includes harvesting only mature animals and patrolling the area ranches.  Chris is relentless on predators and uses full time trappers to control the predator population. His strategy has increased game numbers and improved game quality.
