Wyoming, SE Montana, & Western South Dakota?

What type of hunting shooting do you do and what is your basic location?

magic,
I enjoy hunting all three myself also. I live in Gillette.
pd's?
BTW there is a 1K NBRSA match just outside of Missoula the last weekend of this month. Hope to be there on Friday afternoon and Saturday shooting several specialty handguns against the rifles @ 1k.
I'm preparing to be humbled by the rifle guys and have a lot of fun in the process.

XP, I also live in Gillette. I hunt deer, antelope, elk, moose, and any kind of varmints that can be found. Some days I will set up to do some LR rock shooting, and other days just cruise county roads looking for another victim. It seems here lately I just sit home wishing it would dry up.

Cinch,
Are there certain days of the week when it is easier for you to get out and shoot?
How far out of town (miles) do you typically go to set-up and shoot longer distances (400-1k)?

XP, I usually only get out on the weekends this time of year. When it gets a little warmer and lighter later, I sometimes run out after work. If you go out to Weston which is about 30-40 minutes north of town on N hwy 59, there is the National Grasslands. It is touch and go. There is a lot of land, but it is overrun with 4wheelers at times. Get a good BLM map and you can find some good places up there. My wifes family has a big ranch out by Rozet and that is where I usually go. Her grandfather died a year ago Dec and the land is kind of being fought over by family right now. Hopefully they have it settled soon. There is some good long range at Weston though. There is also some walk in areas along N hwy59 between Gillette and Weston near Cow creek rd where you can walk in a little ways and shoot. There are signs on the fences on the east side of the road and some pullouts to park in. We went out to Weston and shot the gong some at 500yrds two weekends ago. Wanted to go farther, but got too windy.

cinch,
Thanks for the info.
Fridays and Saturdays would be the typical days I have more time to shoot.
