Another smaller ram with a couple ewes. He was about 100yds away.



My dad's buddies spotting some cows on the side of the ridge.



My dad's friends Pat Feagan with gun, and Tim Porter, setting up to take down Pat's cow.



This is the one he takes. She is standing right on the edge of a frozen lake. That would come in handy later!



The rest of the group she was with. There is a spike in there somewhere.



Needless to say Pat got the job done. 200 yds one shot one kill! From L-R My buddy James Beckett, Local C.O., Tim Porter, Host, Pat Feagan, Dad's Buddy, Skip Miller, my father.

Don't know if anyone is familiar with this area of N.W. Wy, but if you are you'll notice Cathedral Cliffs in the upper right background.



Gettin down to business.



The shot went a tad high for some reason.



"Dr." Porter extracting the Ivories.



Sure am glad he shot the one on the ice. Sure does make for a nice drag back to the truck!

The next few days we got to spend relaxing, fishing, shooting, and just some general d*$#ing around.

These guys were right outside the door of the cabin. Notice the spike on the left. His ear was limp, from a fight I'm assuming.



Shooting at some woofs here. Just kidding, I wish it were legal! We were plinking some icicles with my buddy's AR.



This place is icicle heaven!



Ice fishing on Lily Lake in the Beartooth Mts.



A few decent Brook trout.

Heading out on Swamp Lake for some hot Brookie action!




The day's haul.



This was one of my favorite pics from the trip. I caught this guy on my fly rod in a little spring.

As you can see there were mule deer aplenty!



A nice bull inside the cabin.



A few other critters inside the cabin.



This little guy tried to follow me into the cabin from the outhouse! Amazing how unafraid he was. We fed him a few shrimp tails and one small brookie. He was pleased to say the least!



He was dubbed the Shithouse Fox!



Chowin down!



Hope you all enjoy the pics half as much as I did the trip.

Great pics. Glad you got them up as they are really nice. That pic of the brookie in the net with the rod/reel really looks nice, kinda like something you'd see on a magazine cover.

Fur, fins and icicles......Doesn't get much better than than. Looks and sounds like you guys had a great trip.;);)
