Ditto! I'd call it heaven. A number of properties we once could shoot on are no longer available. Owners pass on and the heirs either sell, develop or simply tell us we no longer have permission.

    Sorry to hear about that guys, good luck in finding a good shooting spot. The shot will actually be at or real close to 1840 yards because we will have to get about 45-50 yards from the road to get a clear shot, we will be shooting east and the wind should ( i say that lightly 'cause you never know in ND) be blowing from the west at 8-12 mph so the wind shouldnt be too hard to deal with.

    Muzzleloader season starts on friday and we just got permission to hunt some land where we saw a 155-160" gross whitetail buck.

    Good luck to everyone going hunting this weekend!

    HI thank you very much . I' have been just starting to play at this I have been practicing in a river coulee my longest shot on a Mule deer to date is just over 500yrds .I have a Rem Sendero in 300ultra with a rifle basic trigger and a 6500bushnell scope and 185 bergers and a 223 with a Burris tactical scope to keep some of the practicing reasonably priced . But have come to the conclusion that I need a better range finder than the 1500arc I now own.As you may guess by my name I shoot BPCR Silhouette Here is a Pic of where I shoot here in southern Alberta we were shooting 1000 yrds at the rock which in the pic is a red dot just for fun we tried the 45-70 after the shot You could count One' Two'Three Hit had to wind the sight 3/4 of the way up LOL I hope you have a good day.

    Sweet, it looks like you got a great spot to shoot and a couple great Long range rigs. You could probably push it out even further by the looks of it.

    At 1840 yards we need to dial 53.4 MOA and hold 10 MILS in the reticule LOL.

    My longest kill is an antelope at 486 yards this year with a 338 Lapua and 280 grain Barnes LRX.

    Rangrfinder issues. One word.

    Vectronix.

    Go to the "Long range scopes and other optics" fourm on this sight and look for "Post 2...Swaro Vs Vectronix" thread.

    Sound like you found "the spot".

    Have fun

    Looks like a great spot, it's way fun shooting that far and greatly improves you shooting closer. You can down load Range Card on a smart phone and it works great for ranging using GPS until you get a Vectronix!!
