There are so many things to do in Montana and surprisingly, many long-time Montanans haven't tried some of the most common Montana activities.

It may be that popular Montana activities are preference-based. Say you don't like the outdoors, that would eliminate a lot of Montana activities. Sometimes it's just luck or opportunity.

We asked on social media how long you've lived in Montana and what have you never done. Some answers were quite remarkable. A few themes did develop:

Visiting Montana's National Parks

Despite Montana having two of the nation's most popular national parks in our state (one at least partially), dozens of people said they've lived in Montana for decades but have never visited Glacier National Park or Yellowstone National Park.

Hitting Wildlife in Montana With Your Car

It can happen on just about any street in Montana, and it does. So it's especially rare to meet a Montanan who has never hit a wild animal with their car.
