    yup it's hot there in SD & I've "heard about" the winters. Takes a hearty person to survive...how was the PD shooting?

    Last May. Not so hot. :)

    So can you drive to that Crow Buttes sign or do you have to hoof it?

    Twas a great trip CT.. My first to ND. A quickie 2 day shoot.. Fly out on Friday. Shoot Sat, Sun.. Fly home Monday. Back to work on Tues. Took one gun, Win Model 70 Coyote in 223Rem. Leupold VXII 6-18 scope. 400rds of Winchester white box 223/45gr JHP... Brought home app 350 empties.. No loaded rds... Even got a Coyote looking for a free meal.. 45grain JHPs work on them too. Esp @ 3600fps..
    IMOP.. ND/SD land is more beautiful, rugged, and pristine and than the SD/Nebraska border @ the Rosebud Res.. Flew in to Bismarck ND from Minneapolis/ St Paul.. People were super nice. Was hunting on a private ranch...

    nice! that rifle is in the Caldwell bag is a Cooper w an aftermarket pad... 220 Swift?
    Crow Buttes is on HWY 85 between Belle Fourche SD & Bowman ND. You'd have to drive far to find more wild, beautiful country. Unless you headed further on HWY 85. :) S. Dakota is mighty populated-compared to N. Dakota.

    I have driven by the Crow Buttes, I just did not realize there was a sign there. Thanks much for posting a photo of it. I will look for it this fall.

    Yes, I trashed the factory pad getting it off so I could add lead to the butt, hence the after-market. It's caliber is the King of the Priaire -- .204.
