Myself, my business partner, and his father drew NR Montana deer tags this year and decided on a Missouri River breaks hunt. Beautiful country and neat hunting. Our strategy was to boat to an area that looked promising and hike the breaks searching for deer. The weather was miserable - negative 19 F one morning. It’d take a half hour just to thaw the engine out. But overall it was a cool experience and I was lucky to score a nice buck (first mule deer).

Ya, that's a beauty! Neat way to hunt them as well. We share a border with Montana, yet I've never hunted there. Someday.

That buck was worth the effort. Beating that one on the next go round is going to take some work.
Congratulations.

Thanks for sharing.

Hi Luke. Just saw your message. I am in Dillingham, and have been since 2002. I took an elementary teaching gig here, taught here five years, and then got a job with Togiak National Wildlife Refuge as their education and outreach specialist. Recently I just got a promotion and now I'm the Visitor Services Manager. Prior to DLG I spent 6 years teaching for Lake and Pen in Nondalton.

Hi TT
I am glad you found some useful info in my posts. Hard cast WFN with GC will do the job fine. I trust Veral Smith (owner of LBT company) - I believe that he can provide you with some finest HC bullets. Many companies are coping his design. I can help you from here in developing max loads (40.000psi) just let me know which powder you are using (I use Quick Load software which turns to be very reliable).
