Did it! New MT Landowner

Well, I finally broke down and have a parcel under contract in MT, just west of Missoula. I hope to spend some summers there with the family, and of course a few weeks every fall . . .

I am looking forward to figuring out how to hunt geography that is not a perfectly flat cornfield . . . feel free to chime in to help me out - or ridicule me!

Glad to be a MT part-timer, with a hopeful outlook to be a full-timer in the future

Brandon

    Welcome to the promised land, Brandon. I'm from Butte but at present in Wy. You can have all of Wy for a section in MT.

    Brandon,

    Welcome to the Big Sky Country. Figuring how to hunt it is half the fun ... and I don't think you'll have any problem.

    Cheers!

    How many acres are you acquiring? Any buildings? When will you be sending invites to hunt and shoot? or just give us the address/map coordinates and we'll meet you there!

    We've got a nice 20 acre building site, backed up by an 80 that is surrounded on all 3 sides by USFS and BLM land. For a long way. Not a ton that's "all mine" to hunt, but I'll get tired of hiking before I run out of adjacent land to hunt. Or maybe I'll just get more gear

    I like your idea of posting coordinates. I should introduce myself to the area with a full-on LR shoot, open invite!

    Thanks! I look forward to learning to hunt it the same way I learned here - by screwing up a lot. Should be fun!

    Montana is THE best place in America. Everyone should have a place in Montana.
    .
    Don't waste your time in Wyoming.. can't hold a candle to Montana.

    Look at what I have to put up with in this lousy state of Wyoming!
