Sage Mountain Benefit for Cal Stucky

Cal on Mac

As some of you may know or have read, that Cal was involved in a serious auto accident last month.  Cal is a stand-up guy who owns and runs Sage Mountain Outfitters. He is also a tried-n-true cowboy, rancher, husband and father. Note that he is one of the last few ranchers that still use a Beavertail to stow hay!

Some collegues of Cal are putting on the an event to assist with Cal’s ever growing medical bills. All of the information is below.

If you would like to stay updated on Cal’s status, please visit his CaringBridge site.

Cal Stucky and Family Need Your Thoughts and Prayers

Cal Stucky and Tom NelsonCal Stucky of Sage Mountain Outfitters was airlifted to a hospital after a head-on crash just north of Avon August 12th. He is being treated at a Seattle hospital for injuries incurred in the accident. Cal was driving his truck and hauling a horse trailer filled with hay and tackle, when the driver traveling in the opposite direction drove into his lane. The driver of the other truck had fallen asleep and drove into the wrong lane.

Cal was first airlifted to St. Patrick’s Hospital in Missoula, and then taken by air to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. A nurse there confirmed that Cal was being treated in intensive care Thursday afternoon, but couldn’t release his condition citing privacy law.

A fund named the Cal Stucky Assistance Fund has been set up at US Bank in Helena to help defray Stucky’s medical costs.

The bank is at 302 N. Last Chance Gulch Helena, Montana 406-447-5215

Despite Cal Stucky’s recent accident, the 2009 season will proceed as planned. For any questions, please call (406) 560-5470

I have hunted with Sage Mountain Outfitters and though I did not harvest a bull, it was not their fault as weather was tough and the elk ran to me too quickly. Cal, Renee, Yeager and Dan were nothing but professional, informative and just good people.


There is a website that you can visit so that you can check on Cal’s progress and also send messages to the family, if you would like.  Renee told us that every day and every hour Cal is making great steps towards recovery and that she appreciates all the thoughts and prayers that you have all sent their way.
