    ontario i was through reed point on thursday awful windy there hard to argue with the view though beartooths to the southwest and crazy's to the west northwest. saw a ton of deer on my way to Absarokee couple days this week also. Rides like that make the days short and the legs long for a hike.

    Thanks again for all the well wishes. I'm in South Dakota for a few days taking care of horse activities and getting ready. I am elated, I found a box of Berger 210g bullets in Tennessee and magnum rifle primers in Omaha. So now I have bullets to conduct final practice with. I'll be tuning out to 1000 yards tomorrow without the muzzle brake.

    P-H-W, I think my travel papers are in order but expect the worst.

    email: Sorry all... I set up the new email account for this just before I left and flubbed. It works now: [email protected]

    Yes I am partial to the .300 Dakota. That will be my primary rifle for long range, shooting Berger 210g bullets using a Vortex Viper PST FFP 6-24x50. Backing that up with the Howa 1500 SS 30-06, Nikon Monarch 2.5-10x50 using Barnes 168g TTSX. I'll use this in the black timber too.

    Fliphuntr14, I formerly taught high school and coached at Reed Point just down the road from Big Timber. Shot a whopping whitetail buck up Boulder Creek (before it was plugged up with development). I very much miss that country. Enjoy yourself while there.

    I sent an e-mail to Dakota Man and so far it has not come back, but, I have not heard from him either. He may not know who sent the e-mail. I used the following:

    [email protected]

    OH- I ran into the same issue. I would assume that his email is the number 300 as he seems to be quite fond of the caliber. Possibly there is an underscore or it should be sent to a different provider such as g mail and he was confused. Either way, it's possible someone else here could direct us. But my return confirmation said the email didn't exist. Good luck on your up coming bird hunts, the offer still stands on the visit.

    Good luck. An elk hunt is truly one of the most enjoyable, tiring, nerve testing, and rewarding trip you can go on. We are taking the dogs to South Dakota in December on a pheasant hunt. We had to skip the Colorado elk trip this year (couldn't pay for both).

    Dakota have a great time, be careful and I wish you luck.

    My big game hunt this year will be the New Jersey black bear, again.
    There are a few big bruisers out there but they are nocturnal creatures of the night.
    My trail camera does better then my shotgun slug and gets a four hundred pound bears every night.

    I’m hoping for real cold weather. It should get the boars up to feed during day light hours before they go into hibernation.

    DakotaMan- sorry for such a last minute question, but are all of your horses travel papers in order? I.E. coggins, brand inspection etc? These western states can be sticklers on horse papers.
