Team Bone Collector won the third-annual Gamo Squirrel Master Classic, its second in a row, but every team left with a great experience and memories of small-game hunting with air rifles.
Squirrels are one of our country’s most popular small game animals, and it’s hard to think of a better way to spend a fall day than pursuing this challenging quarry. Most people still-hunt for the these bushytails, but pursuing them from a boat is great way bag your limit.
“It’s kind of a unique area in terms of the Continental Divide on the Helena National Forest,” said John Gatchell, MWA conservation director. “It’s proximity to rich wildlife habitat and what we’ve seen showing up with the diversity of life, it’s a neat thing for people to get engaged with.”
The second annual Squirrel Master Classic shines a light on the fun of small-game hunting, the versatility of air rifles and the importance of getting kids involved in the outdoors.
