    Haha no joke it was some major glassing before we found this guy lol. Actually if we would have flipped the camera 180 when we took the picture you would see a big cedar mtn. They were in the rolling sage hills moving up to the cedars. The heard bull actually gave me the slip. I had him at 700 but im just not comfortable at that distance yet. So I looped around to get ahead of them and the satellite bulls were right there in the next bowl.
    Thanks guys, and thanks for all the help I've gotten being a "newb" to reloading and long shots
