Your best bet is to get on some of the Block Management ranches just off the refuge. The Logan and Lampert Ranches are pretty good bets. I hunted Lamperts opening weekend and just smoked em. They have quite a few potholes just off the Clark Fork and when the start getting pressured off the refuge, they pour onto those ponds. Bummer part is that they just put their cows into the river bottom. I haven't asked them how long they plan on keeping them there. The bonus part is that after we got our limits, we stepped out of the river bottom and shot our limits of Huns.
Anyway, just food for thought. Good luck y'all, and if anyone wants a hunting buddy, hit me with a PM.
