HISTORY OF HUNTING IN MONTANA NEW EXHIBIT AT MHS
The land has always been part of Montana’s heritage, and the one constant part of human interaction with it has been hunting.
The Montana Historical Society will have the grand opening of its new exhibit “Bib Game, Big Stories: Montana’s Hunting Heritage” July 14, Thursday, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. to show how hunting has evolved over the centuries.
People who have lived on this land for 11,000 years of known history have relied on hunting to sustain their lifeways physically, culturally and spiritually.
The new exhibit will take museum goers on a trip from hunting large game with atlatls and spears to advances in techniques that decimated game animals like the bison, to modern conservation efforts that work to ensure a balance between hunters and the game they seek.
The grand opening is free and open to the public with refreshments and exhibit curators on hand to answer questions.
