Bozeman Trail before John Bozeman: A busy land • by Robert Utley,
The Great Father sends us presents and wants us to sell him the road, but White Chief goes with soldiers to steal the road before the Indians say Yes or No."So Red Cloud is supposed to have exploded angrily when Colonel Henry B. Carrington's infantry interrupted the Fort Laramie peace council of 1866. Off he stormed with his Oglala warriors, and the war for the Bozeman Trail was on.

Fly Fishing Opportunities near Bozeman, Montana • By Brant Oswald
The fly fishing opportunities found near Bozeman, Montana are well known to most folks in the FFF community. Rather than repeat the same information that is available from a multitude of other sources, here are a few tips from a local on the area’s best fishing

In the Bozone • by Peter Fish
After just one day in Bozeman, Montana, I was compiling a list of all the reasons my family and I had to move here right away:

MSU acquires records of legendary fly fishing publisher • By Tracy Ellig
Bozeman - In the past 30 years, any reader of fly fishing books has likely turned the pages of something published by Nick Lyons. Lyons, who sought the best writing on angling and put it into print, is regarded as one of the most important forces in the publication of fly fishing books in America.

Empty slopes in Montana
There wasn't really a story at all until the former US television news "anchor" Chet Huntley embarked on creating a ski resort on the eastern face of the mountain, which is about 60 miles south of Bozeman in Montana.

Hemingway Adventure, Bozeman, Montana
On November 1930, when Archie MacLeish flew out to Montana to see his friend Ernest hospitalised in Billings after a serious car crash, it took him two days to get there and he called it ‘the most hair raising flight of my life’.

Mountain Meadows Guest Ranch, Bozeman Montana • By Kimberly Lisagor
I'd Just plunged my fork into a yolky eggs Benedict when Alex, my seven-year-old breakfast companion, posed a question: "Have you ever seen deer guts? They smell baaaad." In any other setting, this might seem strange. Not so in Mountain Meadows Guest Ranch's corner of Montana, 52 miles south of Bozeman, where elk far outnumber humans and a curious young traveler can collect a lifetime's worth of gross-out facts in a single day.

Great ski resorts you've never heard of
If you're serious about ditching the crowds, try one of these powder-heavy, laid-back, easy-on-your-wallet alternatives to the usual Rocky Mountain mayhem. Located about 16 miles north of Bozeman, Montana, on Highway 86, Bridger Bowl Ski Area has 2,000 feet of vertical, great intermediate glade skiing, and some of the gnarliest rock-strewn couloirs in the West. With 25 percent beginner terrain, 35 percent intermediate, 30 percent advanced, and 10 percent hike-in extreme skiing, Bridger has plenty to offer skiiers of all levels. Despite the fact that ultra-funky Bozeman is only a 20-minute drive away, Bridger is blissfully crowd-free--thanks to a new quad that's increased lift capacity by 43 percent. For slopeside accommodations, rent a privately owned condo or opt for the low-key bed and breakfast. Be aware that they only have 75 beds on the mountain, so most people stay down the road in Bozeman (the airport is just 10 minutes outside of town).

Peak Named for Alex Lowe
September 22, 2005 Alex Lowe spent a lifetime inscribing his legacy on mountains all over the world; now one of them will bear the late climber’s name. The U.S. Board on Geographic Names has approved Alex Lowe Peak as the new name of a Montana mountain, in honor of the climber considered one of the finest of his generation. Alex Lowe Peak, formerly known only as Unnamed Peak 10,031 — a number corresponding to its elevation—is southwest of Mount Blackmore in Gallatin National Forest, near Lowe’s hometown of Bozeman.

Thanksgiving Buck - The mule deer of a lifetime
Montana isn’t known as the place to go for trophy mulies, rightfully so, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t any good bucks in Big Sky Country. I’m not going to say exactly where I found this guy, but I think a little background on my development as a hunter and the steps that led me to him will be revealing. I have always had the hunting bug, but my father didn’t hunt big game and the relatives who occasionally took me were pretty much road hunters. I managed to kill a few deer and antelope in my teen years, but never really got the opportunity to hunt much until my college days in Bozeman. I can still clearly remember the first time I was lurking down a ridge in the Bridgers and got what I call the "predator feeling", that right-brain thing where you stop thinking in words and are just "there" with all senses turned up to ten. I haven’t been the same since.

The Face Of Bozeman • By Ann Marie Gardner
No longer a cow town, Bozeman -- in Big Sky Country, Montana -- has been nicknamed Boz Angeles because of an influx of Californians and celebrities. This has resulted in ranchers cashing out and Wal-Mart moving in, although downtown Bozeman still has plenty of charm, along with mountain views. And while it has been known to snow in August, on most weekends you'll find the whole town -- and its many dogs -- floating down the Madison and Yellowstone Rivers on inner tubes.
