Provide your own horse and work for nothing? What an opportunity. Sounds like one of those county predator control jobs. Except for the bear spray thing. I am guessing they want you unarmed.

I don't know anything about Yvonne but her son was on the Montana Stock Growers Association and finished his term with them.
I'd still be a bit hesitant about jumping in with both feet with a outfit like this .
I have a sneaking suspicion that if your hired you'll get to hang a bunch of " flaggery " on the pasture fences to keep the evil grizzled and wolves away from the livestock .

Flaggery is basically surveyors tape on a wire from our friends the bunny huggers .

I've got a sneaking suspicion it could be . After talking with some of my friends down in south central Montana there's some bears still out due to the nice winter we're having.

Leftlane my dad was a believer in the .300 Weatherby mag others like a .270 or a .30-06 with other's swear by the old stand by .30-30

After talking with some folks in the Cody Wyoming area a 12 ga shotgun with bird shot and pepper their butts repeatedly and they will get the hint sooner than later ha ha I heard this from a friend so don't send me hate mail now ha ha

Allan I never did it myself but I knew of guys who would pepper the neighbor bulls rear end when he came calling on their perfect cows- they all said it usually worked after one time but the slow kids might take twice.

As far as putting one down, short of a .338 Lapu mag I am a big believer in the Weatherby rounds big or small. If riding for the brand means watching beeves get eaten I prolly wouldn't fit in so good.

Leftlane,

Can't sat as I have , would have been more then willing to watch from a distance if someone else wanted to give it a whorl tho.

I did rope a couple of yotes over the years and saw or know of several deer, 1 antelope and an elk that got a loop.

Most fun was roping donks in Az.

Friendly tip be ready to have company in the saddle if you manage to put some twine on a deer or antelope. They come rite up the rope to say hi. The guy i know that roped the elk was able to throw a trip and get it wadded up before it could try.

Yeah... Probably not the job for me anyway. I'm actually allergic to horses. I'm told I could get a Bashkir Curly and probably be all right... Something about them lacking the enzyme in their dander that triggers the allergy.

When we figured out what caused my allergic reaction... I couldn't believe it. Never heard of anyone being allergic to horses, but I guess it isn't uncommon.

Just like labradoodles some are some aren't hypoallergenic . My wife is allergic to horses but we had some curlies in the corrals couple didn't make her itch and a couple did.
Its why im stuck with this standard poodle she doesn't react to it allergy wise.

Not much for horses for being stuffed with hay they are easy to slide off of.

I've never roped any wildlife but I've known a few fella's who have most lost their ropes to whatever they roped .
If your going to be stupid you better have a darn good horse and a long rope and don't miss when you go trying to throw the " trip" or thing's can and will get western in a hurry !

My grandpa once roped a wolf and drug it to death or so the story I heard went I tried to get him to talk about it but he wouldn't.

We've got way to many Grizzly bears here in the Pacific Northwest , they need a hunting season reestablished in the worst way!

Guy Allen and Rocky Patterson make it look so easy but... whistle


The late great Rex Bugsby (RIP hand) was hunting stags on an easily wigged out tie down horse almost no one could get along with but of course Rex got along with about everything. His mount did its thing when a whitetail popped up and ran straight out into the open. He looped like Cody Ohl whipping Fred Whitfied's (This word is unacceptable on Trapperman) at the NFR and flanked it fairly quickly (or it would have surely ended up between knot heads legs) and then tried to get his rope back & that is when the wreck started!


He eventually got the job done but not before the thing basically shredded his jeans jacket, a purdy nice brushpopper, his wranglers, and also knocked a ruby out of his buckle. If I hadn't helped his favorite outside horse of all time to take a step forward I think he would still be there with all of us still rooting for him!

Git her Rex! Don't take that crap from her Rex! You got this Rex! grin

The next morning he was walkin slow and when we razzed him he said those sharp hooves had knocked a ruby out of his buckle set and done more than a few terrible deeds to his man parts.
