Montana trophy auction draws hunters, artists and collectors to Billings

National Auction was ready for about 200 to come out to the Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks trophy sale in Billings Saturday.

Some estimated the crowd as double that, and it was an opportunity for people, including non hunters to get some wildlife.

“We are doing a live auction for Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks,” said Case Seal, National Auction auctioneer. “It’s a four-year accumulation of their seized and confiscated roadkill animals. The Big Horn Sheep definitely are one of the hardest tags to draw in Montana. And not only that, they’re hard to be successful even if you do have a tag. And we have some very large ram heads.”
