Bill Aller has fond memories of War Bonnet

Bill Aller cradles the custom-carved gun he won at the 2000 War Bonnet in steer wrestling. Bill Aller turns a steer in Lewistown, Mont., back in 1968 when he was riding the PRCA circuit full time.

Bill Aller has been rodeoing a long, long time, and even though he won’t be competing in this year’s War Bonnet Rodeo, he credits staying active as a rodeo participant with enhancing his life into his 70s.
