BOZEMAN — The PRCA-sanctioned event was back in Bozeman for its ninth annual rodeo stampede.

On Night 1, Dillon native Josh Boka won steer wrestling in 4.7 seconds. Keeping it in the state, Chase Brooks landed a first-place spot in saddle bronc riding with an 84.
Night 2 begins Friday at 7 p.m. at the Gallatin County Fairgrounds.
