That's were I grew up at. I've been out in ND for 6 years now. I actually shoot a BROWNING 30-06 Auto. I shoot 165gr nosler blastic tips w/ 50 grains of IMR 4064 pushing it. I have also had good luck with the 150gr Hornady boatails. I haven't hunted whitetails in MN since 97'. I'm going up there this next season. That is if the ducks and geese are outa here.
