Notes 'Climbing Bighorn' was modeled out of wax in 1924 and was a gift from Russell to one of his friends, who accompanied him as a guide on a number of hunting trips in the Flathead area near Glacier Park. Russell loved to go out on the trips in the wild with his friends, but eventually became physically unable to venture out.
