Peter Koch, 1869-1870:

Koch spent a summer and winter at the mouth of the Musselshell River as a woodhawk and wolfer. After concluding his work along the Missouri River, he traveled to Helena. Koch kept a journal detailing his work, travels, and observations of wildlife. His son summarizes much of the wildlife observations in a Journal of Wildlife Management article on the early history of big game in Montana.
