I've hunted the Tiffany Bottoms before, on the Nelson side of the river between the RR tracks and river. My son shot his first buck in there, a nice 10, a little light on mass so about a 130 B&C class.
This time I'm headed across the river onto the side of Fivemile Bluff hoping to catch some big bucks headed out of the public into the private on top. I'll have about a 400 to 500 yard max shot across the ravine onto the next ridge. I'd imagine they'll be sneaking along on the sunny side or maybe I'll catch a lurker sleeping on the steep ridge. I don't believe many of the locals enjoy humping the hills and prefer to stay to the high or low flats... I'll drag (maybe ride) that critter on the snow down to the river, load up the waiting boat and motor up to Ella.
I'm taking my McMillan A5 Rem 700 300 WSM
with the 6 x 24 x 50 IOR "Hubble" (just an image of the scope...not my rifle of course)
as a scope. I'll take along "The Monkey Blaster" as a spare rifle and of course I'll need my trusty (worn and rusted) 870 Wingmaster for Dunn County hunting.
