    burger delicious many kinds of sausages and jerky And all that meat comes from animals out of our very own backyard I know hunting isn t for everyone For that matter eating meat isn t even for everyone And I respect that But I m a meat eater and I love the tradition that surrounds hunting in Montana Hunting is a centuries old custom well alive today It takes people to some of the most beautiful remote places in the world and allows them to form a unique relationship with wildlife and wilderness Hunting cultures a respect for creatures but is also a way to provide for oneself and family This fall was my first taste of hunting season I cannot say that I will be a die hard hunter but I can guarantee you I will take advantage of all Montana has to offer during each hunting season I ll enjoy time in the mountains and explore the country on horseback I ll hunt for substance and put in the time and effort to butcher and package whatever wild game Mike and I harvest so we have full freezers I had a wonderful conversation with a Sheridan resident last week about what hunting means to him In his mind it s all about providing for his family and friends When family freezers are full they purchase doe tags and get to work helping others They harvest butcher and package wild game for friends who are not able to hunt for a variety of reasons often older community members What a great way to give back Hunting and Montana go hand in hand But as my hunter education course emphasized it is important to remember that hunting is a right not a privilege If you re going to hunt hunt
