On June 12 Jefferson Valley Sportsman's Association (JVSA) and two employees of the Butte Field Office of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) sprayed noxious weeds in the southern portion of the Bull Mountains north of Whitehall. Most of the spraying was done along the Paul Gulch Road (Dump Road) on Public Land to Mud Springs on the Beaverhead – Deerlodge National Forest. Portions of the Tomahawk Ranch (Doug and Sara Salsbury) were also sprayed. The primary weed species were houndstongue, spotted knapweed, and whitetop with lesser amounts of leafy spurge, henbane and common toadflax.
