Full disclosure: there won't be any way-out-there suggestions here that will make you have a Christmas "a-ha" moment.

No, this is intended to simply provide some suggestions for last-minute, affordable items that maybe slipped your mind or that you might want to get to round out the selection of gifts you are already planning for the Montana hunters and anglers on your gift list. And our guess is that is many of you. Nor is this an advertisement for a specific store. It's intended to be a fun little list to add to your fun little lists.
