Re: Idaho adventure with Shawn comes to an end!!!
As always hunting, especially long range, is a learning experience. Kirby was a great client he got a little down on his misses early on but that is natural for anyone. He never once complained about anything, was always willing to stay out until the very last available shooting ligh before leaving our location and was in general a pleasure to have guided. About misses: misses happen, unseen conditions happen, the only thing you can do is to learn from them. I have to commend Kirby for coming before a group of his peers and giving the whole story both high and low. There are many people that would have told of only the sucessful hit or hunt or just not told of it at all. I believe that Kirby deserved the buck he got for many reasons, he is a very good shot, has his equipment squared away, but most of all kept his head in the game despite some setbacks. I believe he deserves the buck and the congrats he has gotton here. Telling of his misses and setbacks just shows he is the real deal.
