Re: Long range hunting in western Montana
Hi Ray, I live in the NW part of the state and I can assure you that it is indeed thick around here. Are there places where longrange shooting come into play? absolutely. Its easy to find places to shoot but finding places to hunt (I'm assuming elk) can be a tall order. Maybe trout creek, up on top near the Idaho border. Be prepared to pack your shooter several miles up hill, and you won't be able to shoot in the prone position.
I don't mean to sound negitive, but I do most of my long range hunting east of the divide and hunt around here with a 405 winchester.
There are plenty of clear cuts you can sit on but I'm not that patient.
