Mary Scott

January 13, 1937 — April 27, 2024


Mary Catherine Scott (McClure) passed away peacefully on April 27, 2024 with family by her side.

She was born January 13, 1937 in Gillette, Wyoming to Lloyd and Matilda "Tillie" (Gregerson) McClure. Mary was raised on the family ranch west of Gillette along with her three sisters, Lois, Meta, and Linda. She married Marion Harold Scott on January 31, 1953. She graduated from Campbell County High School in 1955 through correspondence classes due to marriage. She also gave birth to their first two daughters during this time, Marilyn and Debbie. She was Valedictorian of her class although it was not recognized by the school because of her marriage, a custom at that time.

They had two more daughters, Cathy and Cindy, and raised their family north of Gillette on the family ranch known as the P Cross Bar. Marion and Mary raised beef cattle and were proud of their guided hunting operation, P Cross Bar Trophy Hunts, both of which still operate today.

Mary loved the Lord, her family, hunting, fishing, scoring heads as a Master Measurer for Safari Club, photography (for which she received many awards at county fair), gardening, bowling, cake decorating (including many family birthday and wedding cakes), crocheting, card games, and following her grandchildren and great-grandchildren to every activity she could possibly make it to.

She was a member of Campbell County Cattlewomen, Wyoming Cattlewomen, Wyoming Stockgrowers, Wyoming Outfitters and Guides Association, FNAWS, Grand Slam/OVIS, Boone and Crockett, Family Life Church where she helped with vacation bible school for many years, she was a life-time member of the NRA, and was a 4-H leader for over 40 years.

Mary and Marion were life-time members of Safari Club International. They received the coveted C.J. McElroy Award in 2007 for being active hunting guides and outfitters throughout their marriage. They have hunted British Columbia, the Northwest Territories, the Yukon, Mexico and throughout the United States. They received the Outstanding North American Professional Hunter award from Safari Club International together on January 23, 1993. Mary was a founding member of SCI Sables, and together they founded the SCI Rocky Mountain Chapter.

She completed her Grand Slam in Sheep when she was 69 years young. Her first sheep was a Desert Big Horn Sheep shot in the Baja of Mexico in 1978 followed by a Rocky Mountain Big Horn sheep shot in Wyoming. The third was a Fannin Sheep shot in the Ruby Range, Yukon Territories in 2005. The final sheep was a Dall also shot in the Yukon in 2006. Marion completed his Grand Slam in 2004. Mary was the 46th lady hunter to complete it and they were only the 30th couple to ever achieve it together.
