While flying me over Ennis and the mountains, Hunter says flying gives people a whole new perspective that many don't usually get.

 "They really like to get out and hike and you can spend a whole day hiking and you cover 10 to 15 miles,”said Hunter.“You can only see a corner and state, but when you get in the air and you climb 12,000 feet you can pretty much see the whole valley and just an hour or so."

"It’s just very peaceful and very calm,”said Hunter. “I just think it's one of the most picturesque places in Montana you got the beautiful mountains right here you have a lot of access to recreation fishing, hiking and hunting it's kind of the best of everything right here In Madison county."
