A personal friend of Charles Russell from his days of being a cowboy in Montana, Beil established a studio in Great Falls where Russell frequently visited. Russell referred to Beil as the "best feller I ever seen modeling hosses ‘an cowpunchers." At Russell's funeral, Beil led the procession with Russell's empty-saddled horse. In 1930, Beil settled in Banff, Canada, sculpting the trophies for the Calgary Stampede for over twenty years, beginning in 1938.
