The largest known Golden Eagle migration in the United States passes over the Bridger Mountain Range each September and October. In 1979, raptor enthusiast Fred Tilly discovered this incredible happening and spent the next four migratory seasons on Bridger Ridge counting the raptors. As a result, the site gained international recognition among raptor specialists as a central migratory flyway in the early 1980s. By 1991, Hawkwatch International, in partnership with the Custer Gallatin National Forest and Bridger Bowl Ski Area, established Bridger Bowl as one of sixteen Rocky Mountain raptor monitoring sites. At the time, more golden eagles had been documented here than any other site in the country. Today, the average count remains at 1,200-1,500 birds.

What Makes Bozeman's Downtown the Best in the State

Posted by Kali Gillette on Aug 19, 2021 9:45:00 AM


The Downtown Main Street is an eclectic mash-up of historic, old western architecture and modern, remodeled spaces. A bootmaker's shop across the street from a new karaoke bar; an old book store next to Athleta. It's always busy, giving it a more urban feel, but simultaneously clean and well-kept. Strolling down the sidewalk, you'll encounter cowboys, hippies, ski bums and families of tourists from all over the country. You'll see it all in Bozeman's downtown, with a dense cluster of dining, shopping and entertainment. In other words, downtown Bozeman is a life force.
