March 12 – On this day in Montana history in 1854 George Gore reached St. Louis where he introduced himself to leaders of the American Fur Company. They helped him hire 40 men with wilderness experience for his hunting trip into Montana. The English royal from his luxurious tents enjoyed fine wine and other comforts on his trip. He left more than 4,000 bison, 1,500 elk, 2,000 deer and 500 bears dead during his “gory” hunting trip.
