Plaque: Montana Governor Greg Gianforte you are an authentic hunter and trapper and this gives us confidence that Monatanan’s future of hunting, fishing, and trapping is in good hands. Your tireless efforts in supporting predator management, elk management, and grizzly bear delisting are very much appreciated. We thank you for protecting our outdoor way of life in Big Sky Country! 

Recently, MTSFW Vice President Bill Mitchell, Treasurer Paul Rossignol, Secretary Tami Mitchell, and Executive Director Jeff Darrah met with Governor Greg Gianforte to present him with “The Sportsmen’s Heritage Award” and beautiful knife donated by VP Bill Mitchell. 

A good meeting was had with the Governor, who was fresh off of a mountain goat hunt in which he was successful. The meeting allowed us to express our appreciation to have a Governor that understands the need to hunt predators and for his dedication to protect our hunting, fishing and trapping heritage. We were able to express our feelings of support towards grizzly bear delisting and our continued support towards wolf hunting and trapping.
