Mountain bikes and guns

Low dark clouds threatened rain as we unloaded our mountain bikes and looked over our gear one final time before cycling up the trail. Bikes: check. Tent: check. Food: check. Rain gear: check. Spare inner tube: check. Rifles and ammunition: check.

In Montana, some of the most spectacular and fruitful hunting grounds are deep in the backcountry, beyond the reaches of pickup trucks or off-road vehicles. These areas have long been hotspots for backcountry horseman, but that doesn't mean they are beyond the reach of the average hunter with a bicycle.
