After a long life of enjoying and defending the Swan Range, Elmer Sprunger passed away in August of 2007.
His son, Jerry, continues the family tradition of providing cartoons for the Bigfork Eagle.
Bigfork artist Elmer Sprunger is well known for both his wildlife art and his lively cartoons that long graced the Bigfork Eagle. “There's so much to enjoy in the Swan Range and the best way to see it is on your own two feet.” Jerry says. Adds Elmer: “You can take all sorts of medicines for stress. But nothing beats hiking or riding a horse into the Swan Range to relieve stress and worries of the world.”
