What part of Montana are you going to for your hunt?uglydog said:There are a bunch of them. I have a Savage Striker in 7mm/08 that is going with me tomorrow on an antelope and mule deer hunt in Montana. I've taken a couple deer with it and it works well. I had a Remington XP-100 in 35 Rem but sold it before I shot anything with it. I've also had a T/C Contender with 30/30, 35 Rem, and .223 Rem barrels and it was an effective gun too. The Encore should be at least as effective as it is chambered for the higher pressure rifle calibers. Weatherby had a pistol in standard rifle calibers too. I don't think it is being made any longer but I still see one now and then.
Let us know how you did when you get back!! I'm jealous, it's been almost a decade since I've been out there!!uglydog said:Scott,
I hunt the Glendive area, a couple buddies have been hunting here for years and I finally was able to join them. If I fill my tags early, I plan on chasing upland birds. I hope to finally tie into some sage hens, it would be interesting seeing the looks on the dogs' faces when sent out to retrieve them. I'm off as soon as my ride gets here, I hope its soon.
If you ever need some help fending off the wild deer and antelope, after you move back, you be sure to let me know, I'd be happy to do my part to defend you.Cleric said:Wahoo! Montana lovers. I call Dillon home and will be returning to the state to work in a couple of years. I miss my home.
