Hello from Bruce and me! We're glad you found us and we look forward to welcoming you to our beautiful corner of Montana! We love making new friends through hunting on our Preserve. Here's a little bit about us, in case you're interested. I, Anne, began my hunting journey during my first visit to Montana in 2005. I am a meat-eater and wanted more connection with how my food gets on the table. I learned to shoot and to hunt from dear Bruce, with copious tears, frustration, mistakes and figuring it out along the way. I became proficient (not great) and it became my number one passion. One day I woke up and decided I wanted to teach women to hunt and Joy of Hunting was born! Bruce and I are a team when it comes to managing the preserve. He has an enormous amount of knowledge and experience in stewardship of habitat and other conditions designed to attract and keep pheasants on our property. He is a great bird hunter, always in the right place. And he rarely misses. He is intense, walks fast and always has a plan for the hunt. Me, I like to think I am more relaxed about it (actually, I can be pretty intense too!), aware of how difficult is can be for a new hunter to manage all the different facets of hunting and be purposeful about creating a comfortable learning experience and building up skills and confidence at the same time. Our canine support team is very important to us too. Violet is now our senior dog, a handsome Yellow Lab who is brilliant at retrieving runners; Reacher is a Brittany who is still learning the ropes but as a puppy had 44 pointed birds shot over him; and Rimu, our new Lab, 6-months-old as the 2020 season starts, is already an astounding, though as-yet undisciplined, hunter! Through hunting, I took up Sporting Clays for practice and fell in love with the sport! I became a certified Level 1 instructor under the NSCA program and took Montana State Championship (Ladies) in 2018. I love to introduce new shooters to Sporting Clays. And, for those that make the journey into hunting, I adapt my teaching to fit the art of hitting flying birds, coming out of nowhere with an unpredictable flight path, while knowing where the other hunters and the dogs are, being safe, not falling over or getting behind or in front, and having a good time! So if you feel like giving it a try, I can't wait to hear from you!! Anne
