The first two days of the Rooster Road Trip saw us traverse a variety of terrain that highlighted the vast range of upland landscapes found in Montana. The wide-sweeping views of sharptail country juxtaposed with the beauty of the Teton River Build a Wildlife Area certainly provided a mixed bag of birds, and results – but the crew now had our sights firmly set on the central part of the state’s prolific pheasant country – or at least we hoped it would be prolific – this was, after all, a hunting trip.

The second stop of the 2022 Rooster Road Trip found us hours away from where we chased sharp-tailed grouse the day before. And although there was some familiarity in being back in what felt like pheasant country, this Teton River Build a Wildlife Area and the animals that call it home were anything but normal for most of us.

The second episode from Rooster Road Trip XIII recaps the groups hunt at the Teton River Wildlife Area.
