Maggie Carr, co-owner, grew up along the Rocky Mountain Front where her family has lived for over 100 years. Hiking, riding, and exploring the Bob Marshall Wilderness has been an integral part of her life since an early age. She left Montana to participate in an AmeriCorps program in Washington D.C., but soon realized that Montana was where she belonged. Upon completing her degree in Rangeland Management at Montana State University, she moved back to her hometown of Choteau.
Maggie’s work/play history has been focused along the Rocky Mountain Front and the Bob Marshall Wilderness, and sharing these places with others is one of her favorite things to do. In recent years, Maggie has worked for the United States Forest Service in the “Bob”, packing and working on trail crew. This was a great opportunity to explore the seldom seen areas of the wilderness. She has worked for the Nature Conservancy’s Pine Butte Guest Ranch as a wrangler/naturalist. Here, she enjoyed showing folks the Rocky Mountain Front, one of the most ecologically intact landscapes in the United States. Also, in past winters, she has worked at Teton Pass Ski Area, a small ski hill located just a few miles from the “Bob”, where she honed her Facebook skills. Currently, she works for Mills Wilderness Adventures on hunting trips into the Bob after the Dropstone season is over. She has also spent a bit of time working in the sheep industry both in Montana and New Zealand. These jobs have influenced her desire to share these magnificent places with others and to continue working in the great outdoors. There is nothing she enjoys more than guiding folks to places they have never explored before.
In her free time, Maggie likes to play with her dog, work with her horses, read, ski and laugh at good (or bad) jokes.
