My favorite shooting range, 5-10min from the front door of my parents house. One can shoot anywhere from 50 to 1000+ yards here. COST 0.00...... priceless

Link Posted: 11/2/2009 5:50:54 PM EST

A deer A tag is different, and more expensive. with an A tag you can shoot either sex, either species. then there are the various B tags. you can get 3-7 deer in some places. then the damage hunts start in december.

I am guessing 450. I said it was 400, and dad thought it was 500. I use a 200 yard zero on a 6mm I aimed about 1-2 inches below the topline and hit 2-3 inches below midline.

do you do any fly fishing there? It is my absolute favorite place to fish bigger water. From below the dam to the bridge is great water.

Some when I was younger.......trip through the Gates is still impressive. I guess thats why L&C noted it in their diaries.

Most of those pics are from 40 miles east of Havre. Pretty close.

All flat land looks the same to me. I grew up about 30 miles south of missoula so I was surrounded by mountains
