It's Fall in the Rockies and all I can think about are big browns and planning my next trip, where would I like to be? Bozeman comes to mind and from the calls I've gotten recently from my Montana buds, all I an do is to live vicariously through them and their fertile freestones loaded with monster browns. I thought I would do a write up on some local events for the area of Bozeman in case a few of you may be heading that way the next few weeks. I have to wait until September of 2010 before I get my fill of Bozeman activities I guess.
