O/B's picks for 2016.

The outdoors are an escape from the political arena — or at least they should be. Unfortunately, politics creeps its way into all aspects of American life, and nowhere is this more apparent than in Montana's public-lands debate. This election season, vote with public land and public access — the future of our outdoor lifestyle depends on it. Here are our suggestions for next Tuesday's election, most of which coincide with endorsements by the Montana Sportsman's Alliance and Montana Conservation Voters, as well as that of other conservation and outdoor-recreation groups.

Springs around Bozeman.

Soaking in hot springs, aka “hot-potting,” is a universal and timeless pleasure. Nothing beats the sensation of slipping into slightly stinging water, only to feel comfy and tranquil seconds later. Whether you’ve had a long day tracking wapiti, been at the office too long, or just have an afternoon off, these are the best spots in which to soak your bones.

Making venison stir fry.

Soon enough, you'll have meat in the freezer—if you don't already. Now, I love venison, but a meal of just meat can be dull and nutritionally deficient. One way to combine venison with a healthy amount of tasty and colorful veggies is by making stir fry. Stir fry is an ancient Chinese method of quickly cooking meat and vegetables in a small amount of oil over high heat. This recipe is adapted from a popular Cook’s Illustrated version—try it this fall.

Reviewing the latest from Confluence Films.

With a title like Providence, it's immediately clear that the most recent release from Confluence Films (set to premier on October 15) is about far more than inspiring you to fish. Yet, the achievement of the film is that it does just that, all while showcasing the logistics of shooting an exotic location on the far side of the world. In this case, that place is the Seychelles Islands off the east coast of Africa.

An outing with the Yellowstone Association.

The thunder-train raced along on its track of lightning, throwing hail-like bits of white coal from its furnace. Aspen quivered. Chipmunks took cover. The stellar jay chattered and huddled in the branches of the old Doug fir while water washed in beads off its back. All 14 members of our Yellowstone Association class, “Beauty & Science of Autumn,” waited on the bus for the storm to pass. Autumn storms may be short, but they’re also violent—no sense in setting up scopes and cameras to look for mountain goats, just to have our equipment get drenched in this cell of electrified weather.
