I called Mike over the weekend to congratulate him. Upon answering the phone, Mike asked, “did you get that target photo I sent you?” I replied, shoot yes, boy you’re either a great shot or you have a great gun! Mike laughed and said, “I’ll say it’s more the gun, I’m just tickled pink with it!” His turnkey system has been proven accurate to 1,000 yards, and Mike can’t wait to shoot it long range.
Mike has been a BGF member since 2010, and he joined quickly after noticing BGF’s legal victories getting the wolf off the endangered species list and BGF’s political successes in promoting state management of sage grouse.
Mike commented that “we have to preserve big game animals for future use, or there won’t be any, they’ll be like the buffalo. I think you guys are doing a fantastic job!”
Mike lives in a small town roughly 1500 people in Montana and has noticed a significant decrease in elk, moose, and deer numbers in his area. I asked Mike how the big game has been affected, he replied. “The big game herds have been knocked down quite a bit because of the wolves. But if you’re careful and spend time up in the hills away from the road you can still find some nice animals.”
Mike has nothing but glowing reviews about his custom built Best of the West Signature Series Rifle. He said, “those boys make an excellent rifle! They are more than helpful with questions about my bullet loads and gun, there really nice guys to chat with.”
Mike, thanks for your commitment and membership with BGF. We wish you nothing but success in your upcoming hunts in Montana.
