Thanks guys.
In the pic, the two on the far left and the three on the right without orange were my heros. The other three were hunting.

I doubt very much any one was in a worse spot than I on the 20th, the start of the second hunt.
Along with my other hunting gear I have a particular watch I wear when I hunt. Rather large numbers and a button that can be pushed to light up the dial. Plus I'm usually an early riser.
Anyhow, I wake up, check my watch--its 3:00 AM. I get up head outside and go to the shower room. Back, make a pot of coffee and turn all the lights on with the usual " Ya gonna sleep all day or get up and get ready to go hunting". Now were sittin around, workin on our secong cup of coffee, wondering why the light aren't on in the kitchen across the way. Finally the last guy gets up, comes out looking at his watch and wants to know what the hell we are doing up at 1:45: in the morning.
Well it seems my watch was still on NY time!!!. Amazing how fast these guys lost their sense of humor. I'm just lucky there wasn't a rope handy!!

Nice bull.
Area looks similar to where I typically hunt in between Bayfield & Chimney Rock.

Nice bull and a great shot. Looks like the 225 Accubond works well. Good story about the watch. The guys I hunt with would have found a big stick, if they didn't have a handy rope.

Congratulations Phil, good shot....nice bull.

That terrain looks a bit "thick" in places, but I'm sure it beats climbing in the rocks.

Hey, take a young guy hunting next time will ya!

Nice photos, looks like an ideal spot for long range shooting. I'd be pretty happy with a bull like that too
