These were all from a recent trip to N.W. Wyoming. We had two cow tags and filled them both the first two days, which left time for plenty of fishing. We had a great trip and got to do a little longrange shooting as well.
My father tagged out 1 hr after we got up to our friend's cabin in Sunlight Basin, Wy. We took a stroll up in the basin and found about 20 cows feeding on a bench about 550 yds away. My dad got set up on a fence post, with a rear bag and let her have it. One shot was all it took. We dragged her down off the side of the hill and loaded her up.
The next day we got out around 10 am or so. We started up the basin disecting its draws. We finally found a group of about 50 cows up in one of the draws. Unfortunately someone had already staked their claim. They were sitting there waiting for them to clear the timber at 750 yds. So we left them alone and looked up a few more draws to no avail.
We went back to the cabin and had some lunch and then headed up toward the Beartooth's. We then happened upon a group of about 8 cows feedding next to a frozen lake close to the road. My father's buddy tagged out on a cow here. Luckily the one he shot was on the ice, so that made for a nice and easy drag across the lake back to the truck!
The next day we shot some ice cicles, shot some mountain sides about 700 yds away for some fun and finished the next few days out with a good bit of trout, grayling fishing. We all had a blast and were blessed to see so many of God's creatures in such a beautiful setting.
Enjoy the pictures and remember I'm not a professional photographer, so some of them are a little rough!

Sunrise in Sunlight Basin! Absolutely Beautiful.
Fresh wolf track. That's my benchmade knife next to it 4.5inches.
Nice Ram. He was only about 50 yds away from us.
7/8 curl? Pretty darn nice looking ram to me.
