Four of us from Duluth just returned from an annual sharptail hunt in eastern Montana. We camp in the hay yard of some farm friends we’ve come to know, pitching tents in the shelter of the bales. Hunting was decent, weather excellent. As you can see by the last photo, our farm friends reserve us a spot in the hay yard.
