I should have known better..................

So, my brother came down from Alaska to mule deer hunt with me and we went out yesterday. I figured I wouldn't take my long range rig due to my priority was getting him a buck, which we did. Nice 4 x 4.
Anyhoo, we were sitting on a ridge glassing and wouldn't you know it. Damn, damn, damn. Here comes a lone wolf over the top, never knew we were there and I just shook my head. Go figure. It would have been a long shot (800 ish) but there was no wind, level incline and had plenty of time to set up. I will NEVER do that again.

    Woops, I misread the op. "Wouldn't" bring long range rig. The extra weight wouldn't have so bad after all.

    Yeah, well the season ain't over yet.
    Last year at this same location, I saw 9 wolves so I think there is a den somewhere near here. Might have to build me a perch and let those 215's fly..............
