2012 Was Fair to Midland (Pic)

I'm not sure where to post this because there are 3 different species in the photo. I guess here is as good as anywhere. 2012 in Montana was a fair to midland year. I've had better and have had worse, but overall it wasn't bad. Having my own beetles to clean skulls makes things a little more fun. Although all the coyotes I killed last season aren't in the photo it wasn't bad. Called in and killed a little over 50 coyotes, 1 bear, and 1 mule deer. Normally there would be an antelope in the picture as well, but I haven't been lucky enough to draw the last 2 years. Drew 16 years in a row and then nothing the last two. Oh well, I should be about due to draw this year. Anyway it took a while to get all the skulls cleaned up. Hope some of you enjoy the pic.

Really I used to hunt arrow creek breaks over by denton quite a bit and a little out of stanford. I hear tell there are some big bulls running in the belts, but never have hunted over there. Nice buck no matter where he came from

I've killed a number of critters in the Arrow Creek breaks. There are some bulls over there, but not tons and tons of elk. Drawing a rifle tag is pretty difficult as you probably well know.

That's one awesome pic!

Nice work. Keep crushing those 'yotes.
What were you using to kill them, by the way?
