Re: 2013 Long Range Shoots In Townsend Montana

Jeff,

I'll opt to camp at that little spot by lake/river or whatever.

Want to try some new equipment.

I'll bring that pecker-wood 375 and let some of the guys drive it. Even bng's daughter. Need to get some interest going on the really big cartridges.

I'll be there on the 4th.

Hopefully I'll be spending the rest of the summer scouting. Hope to get a moose permit. Yeah, right!!!???

Also need to workout details/procedures on the packing with goats thing. Nothing like spending time in the hills w/goats.

Riley,

April 4. That will be about 4 days after all physical restrictions are lifted by the medical folks. Won't be luggin' around any buckets of concrete but I'll get along..

Make it then and see if you are "man" enough to drive a 375 AM.

May have to fill your pockets with dirt to weigh you down a bit.

Re: 2013 Long Range Shoots In Townsend Montana

I am only seeing an April 20th, guessing that one then? As for shooting your 375 AM, i think i may send one or two down range, i might need to move the gun forward a couple feet after each shot though.

Re: 2013 Long Range Shoots In Townsend Montana

Damn that sounds like a good time...... I would love to make it and meet up with ya'all but I just cant swing it this year. We have another surgery to go on our son so we are out three trips to Salt Lake.

I have learned a ton from you guys and hope to make it perhaps next year. Till then have fun guys.

Roy hope all is well and your recovery is going smooth. How far is Townsend from here anyway.....



Edit..........just looked at google maps, 4 hrs....... Now I really wish I could make it. Have fun guys.

The story was told to me by his wife who owned the little motel we stayed at on a deer hunt in Malta Idaho about 17 years ago...... Youll never see that again. Just a cool pic of Idaho deer huntin history

Yeah I was wondering bout that too. Glad you won't be showing up early.

Me and Broz have been known to show up a day late for gun rally in Helena
