I was just looking out my kitchen window, and saw 3 mulie does and 2 fork horns just over the back fence. That's about 75 yards from the window.
They turned and faced to the east, where about a hundred head of antilope (sp) were running across the valley at about 300 yards. the antilope stopped running, and the deer went back to browsing.
What a beautiful sight.
Damn, I'm glad I moved up here.
Just thought I would share this with you.
I went out Saturday to look for some Javalina. Never did see any Javalina, but I did see 3 groups of coyotes, two herds of 15 Antelope and three herds of 30+ Mule deer ( Plus one group of 22 illegal migrants )
It's a wonderful thing to be in the mountains at sunrise, and not another soul in sight.
If I can kill that coyote from here, Will you walk out to get him?
Gee Thanks for makin me miss the West even more!! I had to move back here to Oklahoma a coupl'a years ago and haven't stopped kickin myself yet. No muleys,no elk, no antelope, no mountains, not very many places to shoot.AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!
Looking out my back window, I see 4 deer feeding right now in this cold wet rain we are having in Driftwood, PA.
Normally there are a few elk out there too, but not today. Yes, for those who don't know, there are elk in Pennsylvania and quite a few of them. Enough to have a hunting season on them the last two years.
This area (North Central PA) is the closest thing to being out west I have ever seen and can relate it to the area we hunt in Colorado every year.
If your near the Bighorn range, your in a great place. I saw some HUGE bucks there many years ago.
I guess I'll just have to "suffer" here and wait for the Williamsport 1000 yd club to open it's doors for shooting this season.
You know the place.
Still shooting your 6.5/300 Weatherby's?

For those of you who were wondering, Hanna is located about 75 miles west of Laramie, and about 45 miles east of Rawlins. It's 13 miles north of I-80, at the Elk Mountain exit.
One of the things I shoot is a Savage in 300 RUM.
Right now, I'm waiting for the weather to warm up, Just like everyone else around here. The weather service is calling for snow for the next 4 days, with a weather advisory.
Almost 30 degrees and nice out, but I don't see any whitetail, mulies or elk out my window yet! [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
Maybe someday they'll migrate this way. You all can help speed the process up a bit and sneak some up in your luggage and horse trailers when you come, whatever it takes!!
