Lacy Nickol has purchased the Golden Triangle Agency specializing in crop, hail and farm-ranch insurance.
Originally from Modesto, Calif., she moved to Montana to be closer to family, transferring to the local Wells Fargo Bank. She later moved over to work at M&K Distributors and Farmers Insurance.
Nickol purchased the agency in June, however, she is not involved in the real estate portion of the business, “Just farm and ranch liability, livestock, crop and hail insurance.” She went on to add, “ I can also offer home, auto, and liability insurance.”

FIRST DEER — Cooper Dailey, 12 years old, completed a Hunter Safety course and while hunting with his grandfather Dick Dailey, west of Dupuyer near Swift Dam, brought down his first deer, a nice 5x5 mulie. He used a Savage .270 rifle and one shot from 100 yards. An uncle, Bob Dailey and a cousin, Bo Dailey were part of the hunting party. For the I-O courtesy of the Cooper family

It’s that time of year when hunting talk centers around antlers or “horns.”
It happens throughout the fall, but in spades during Montana’s five-week deer and elk general season. Probably because there are so many people afield now: about 240,000 gun hunters versus maybe 40,000 archers back in September at the peak of archery season.
Also, everyone, it seems, wants a trophy rack to hang on the wall at sometime in his, or her, life. Even many meat hunters profess a desire for one big bull elk or buck deer before they head to the happy hunting grounds in the sky.
Maybe that yearning explains why there are misperceptions about what it takes to grow antlers and why not every deer and elk that reaches maturity will sport massive headgear.
