Not long range but some kind range Elk

Our shooting range is in the Helena Nt Forest and up on the divide. This last week someone was doing a little shooting and as he was putting his gear away a 6X6 bull elk steps out on the range and got sighted in on

That is Montana slob hunting at its best.

Re: Not long range but some kind range Elk

Out of season I presume? In the spring we get big game animals of all sorts wandering around at tempting distances near our range... but it's spring. I always felt sorry for the poor little bugger ground squirrels that decided to come out near the 250 yards stands right after we got our rifles sighted dead on at that range.

There's never a shortage of idiots who have to make life difficult for the rest of us.

Nope, last week and It is Big Game season. Now this is leased FS property to the local club but I do not think it would be any different than a rancher leasing FS to graze? It is still public lands.

Our range is the same for antelope, they cross at the 1000yrd line and at the 500-600yrd.

In that case, I will have to change my mind. I've worked awfully hard for a lot of elk that were packed out on my back. If it's legal I'm okay with that.

Was that at the range on MacDonald Pass? I might have to start shooting there instead of the Townsend range.

Re: Not long range but some kind range Elk

Thats the one. I don't know what side it was on, either the 100yrd or the 200-300yrd side? I went up saturday morning but the wind was howling and blowing snow so I shot a little at the pistol range. Went to get my hair cut and my barber asked if I saw the gut pile? What, I thought he was joking. Their is a sign that says no hunting so I don't know if a investagation by the club will insue?
