I'm heading up in July for a job interview, figured I'd check in and see if we had any members in the area.

I'm familiar with the locale, know of a great range in a State Park, and have lifelong friends in the area, so I'm just looking to see if there are any other ARFCOMmer's in the area.

OK, in seriousness- I haven't ever heard of anyone checking in East of Billings. You'd think there'd be someone around the Miles City area... (There are a lot of bars in MC so perhaps the inter-web is slow but the booze is fast there)

I have not heard of anyone over Havre way either. Great Falls is about as far east I have heard of up here.

My grandparents lived in Miles City and I've made plenty of trips to the area over the years. Now about as far east in MT I go is Billings.

I grew up in Eastern Montana, Wolf Point to be exact. I do miss the wide open country side. I reside in Tacoma WA now and it is tough to let my toys breath here. Most of the ranges have magazine restrictions and do not allow for rapid fire. It can also be tough to find a place to shoot out in the weeds as there are just too many people around. Good luck with the interview and we will be with you in spirit.

I have a friend that I grew up with who lives in glendive. He does quite a bit of shooting, and fishing there. He seems to like it there. He does a lot of p dog shooting. I grew up in north central MT. Lots of shooting places.

You the man! My mother was from Miles City and all of her brothers still live around there that is the one's still alive. I have cousins in Wolfe Point and Glendive. I would live up in those parts in a heart beat but I am stuck here for awhile till my little girl finishes school atleast.
Best of luck to you!

Hey guys, been up here in Glendive a few days now.

The interview went good, but I won't hear anything until next week. I guess with the oil boom up here, the railroad is really hurting for help.

At my hiring session, there was exactly TWO of us. The other guy is a journeyman with UP out in Nebraska. They invited 10, and plan on hiring 7. SO, hopefully I sold them on the idea of my being a worthy candidate for an Apprenticeship!

Glendive, Circle, Wolf Pt., Culbertson, Sidney & back to Billings. About 11 hours

of "windshield" time. My legs are killing Me. This trip sucks a$$ in the Winter.

No shit?

I'm a Ham myself. I don't even think there is a repeater in Glendive that I could find.

There's a decent gunshop right across the street from the yard up there
