Just Jawin At Camp / Montana prairie dog hunt in 2020 ?

Would any of you yahoos be interested in a all Prairie dog/ coyote hunt NEXT summer in north Montana?
Kind of like running for president I'm just doing a exploratory post, testing the waters.
Look up "Zortman MT" In that general Area South of the Reservation.
It's about 3 1/2 hours out of Great Falls.
GOOBS of BLM, National monument and, state Lands.
Many ponds full of crappy, blue gill, and pumpkin seed fish, if you lean that way too.
Miles and miles of nothing but prairie and prairie dogs.
It would have to be a at least a three day two night trip.
Camping would be the name of the game.
Time frame I'm thinking end of June first part of July , not the 4th.
Any later and it get HOT!!!!!.
Any interest ?
I was looking on Google earth and my BLM maps and found a place
I have hunted before called Dog Town Reservoir
 How could we pass up on a camp spot on Dog town  Reservoir???
I have stayed here before, no trees but lota Prairie dogs and bluegill'55.7%22N+108%C2%B031'19.6%22W/@47.7154868,-108.5214663,284m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0x0!8m2!3d47.71548!4d-108.52212

Wow! That's some post, D! O0  It looks like you had a great time except for the weather and your pal losing that wheel. I'm sure glad you folks worked in some fun on that trip.

That snow just keeps coming, doesn't it! :shock:

What's next, fishing or hunting?

First off thanks for all that came and added there expertise, experience and resources.
A special thanks to RobertMT For all he did, set up camp, feed us cleaned up camp, wonderful person for sure.

Weather !

The Montana unknown.

Right now ( Sunday) I'm looking out my window. 50 MPH west wind, 25*, sideways snow ground is all white, YUK.

Bear slipped in early and Wednesday he and I did some coyote calling.

Mid April and first part of May is the hardest time of year to call in coyotes. We did not even see a road dog let alone have one come in to play...
 The weather did cooperate after the chilly start with rain and some hail then sunny and light winds.

Thursday was a very early start 3 am. RobertMT drove in to our Prairie dog grounds the day before and set camp,
 he had wind rain and some snow on his trip across the " Highline". Two hour ride in the dark, deer infested road to shooting grounds .
 I did find out a f150 windshield will with stand a full frontal impact of a HUGE owl at 69 mph.
Robert had SOS hot coffee and a dry place to stand when we got there.

I knew of several "Towns" in the area but one was very close and only a short walk off the road, that's where we headed.
It started out slow but as the sun light up the ground and the temps came up so did the PD's.
Some 100 yards shot but most were the normal 200 to 400 yard shot. Shot till noon and back to camp for "Bunny

burritos ". After lunch we hit them again hard.
No Idea about the number of dead but you had to look very close to see if you where shooting a live target or a dead one.

I counted my brass from the 6mm and it was 115 empty ones. I hope I was hitting like 1 in 4 ????

Some pics.

 The trip home for most of us was simple.

Poor Robert lost a wheel on the cook trailer and it occupied him for the next day .

Friday was cold windy and cloudy. We tried some gophers closer to Great Falls , very slow to say it kindly.

I had my little Granddaughter with the group , she got some shooting mostly at water bottles and mud clods . But she was happy.

I wanted her to try and shoot a 7.62x39 I think she will use for deer this year.

We found a good spot I pot a "Girl Scout Cookie" box out at 50 yards and let here try.

 First ever shots and all three went in to the box...



IBD and LIZARD headed off to the other side of the state to other obligations.

Steve had a track meet he had to help with and MY GD had places to be also.

So down to 5 of us and the gophers.

Slow again as the weather was crap again but we did squeak out a few targets other then plastic and dirt.
 Back to town for Burgers and the gun show.

THEN today?????

still a full winter blizzard, I'm thinking the shooting is over for this years shoot. ]

Not a big fish eater only walleye or perch get saved to eat and then only if I'm going to cook them that night.

Those would also be great to take along camping, fishing, or a hunting trip, too.

 O0 That's really good, D! And that is the best way to wear out a kid! Wouldn't those fish be good smoked? Or too boney?

Easter brake.
A GOOD Friday,


Red tail suckers are spawning in big numbers.

No good to eat but huge fun to catch.

All 3 pounds plus.

My granddaughter kept me busy rebaiting and un hooking fish

Ended just after lunch just in time for a nap home I guess.

I did get one.

That's almost a state record Blue sucker.

There a species of concern so she went back in the drink.

State record is almost 12 pounds this one was very close.
