You bring that kind of attitude, you will fit right in.

As an aside, our little pine squirrels are pretty small, take 20 of them to make a decent sandwich.
We do have cottontails, Jackrabbits/Snowshoe hares, woodchucks, (both yellowbellied and hoary Marmots), prairie dogs and the number one game animal for teaching young'uns how to shoot and firearm safety, Gophers!!

Your son could have a ball here learning game management, habitat, hunting skills, wilderness/survival skills and there is a lot of area and animals for him to work with.
Montana has supurb animal populations and variety primarilly due to the dilligence and support of the hunting and landowner community. Not to mention the hard work of several hunting organizations such as the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, Pheasants Forever, Montana Trappers Association, Trout Unlimited and a hundred others.

Respect for the landowner is paramount to access, Landowner respect for the hunter and the game work hand in glove to make our wildlife such a valuable resource here.

The overpopulation of wolves has damaged the Elk, Moose and Deer herds in some areas, (not to mention livestock), but the ranchers, hunters and Fish and Game working with the legislature are trying to get a handle on the infestation and protect the herds and livestock.

It would be a very good education for your son to be exposed to the way we work for the welfare of our game animals and livestock industries here.
There are out of state eco-wacko groups that are working hard in the courts to destroy our states biological systems, but we keep fighting back.

Not a decision to be made lightly, but if you do come here, bring a lot of tolerance, patience and a good work ethic coupled with the desire to embrace the culture and traditions of this state, and you will do fine.

Good Luck.

Congratulations!
There is a lot of competition for jobs these days, so you must be pretty good at what you do.

Careful what you wish for, it may come true! LOL!

Thx.. I'd say I stand about as good a shot as anyone else.

The ONLY downside to this whole thing would be that I would have to move first while the missus packs up the homestead and we put our house on the market to sell.

It'd be tough on the kids without Dad around for sure (and tough on Dad too).

BUT- No pain no gain eh?

Who knows, next time I post I may be asking if anyone has a room to rent or some space in an outbuilding where I could store some of my stuff!

The higher the price paid, the more dear the prize.

I can emphasize with you. When I was deployed overseas it was really hard on the wife and I. But the seperation didn't last forever, and the homecoming back to Montana was really worth it.

I think a temporary sacrifice made for the benefit of the family is always worth it.

With computers, telephones and e-mails, even without being there in person you won't be entirely alienated. Plus, you are the advance guard for a great adventure!!
The kids love the picture of their fearless father blazing trails into the unknown to make a new home for them.

You will do fine I am sure!!
