Montana Antelope Hunt

This was an exciting hunt with CPL Justin McLoud who was injured while serving in Afghanistan with Marine Corps 3rd Battalion 5th Regiment - Dark Horse. The region where they patrolled was the Sangin Valley "Green Zone" in the Helmand Province.

This Battalion had more casualties than any other battalion in the wars on terror. With over 200 casualties, they lost 25 Marines during the course of their deployment from October 2010 to March of 2011. Semper Fidelis Marines!


Special thanks to the Wes Sargent Lydia Sargent and at Sargent Ranches for an excellent Antelope hunt; Lloyd Johnson and Otto Stenberg for another awesome time at Specimen Creek Outfitters; Rowdy Yates - Colt Yates of Shooting Star Ranches for the fishing excursion;

Thanks to BJ Robert for the crawfish donation! AJ Warneke donated the use of his .50 Cal Barrett and ammo. $10 a shot with proceeds going to Brian's Battle with ALS.

condolences to Kris, Justine, Andrew and the entire Schulte and Foppe families! He will be missed badly! God bless you all!
