Montana Outdoors

The first issue of Montana Outdoors, published in November 1970, featured a photo of a grizzly bear feeding on an elk carcass. There was nothing poetic about the image, just the hard facts of biology, life, and death. Such a straightforward approach was the hallmark of the magazine’s first editor. Bill Schneider grew up in South Dakota, where he’d received bachelor’s degrees in wildlife biology and journalism. After graduating from South Dakota State University, Schneider went to work in Glacier National Park, where he’d spent four previous summers working on the trail crew. On the way home he swung through Helena looking for a job right when the Montana Department of Fish and Game (as the agency was known then) was looking for an editor. He was 21 years old. Source
