You do find a lot of well trained hounds in Montana and a lot of them are hunting dogs.

A lady I know Kim and her husband Chris have a dog Cane that is a hunting dog and he proved that when they delivered a basket of goodies for us at the station and as you see in the photo Cane was the one holding the basket!

Can is a Wire-haired Pointing Griffon ( I believe) and Kim and Chris being such avid hunters there is no surprise their dogs are good hunters too.
