    K, you should have started a new topic for that one. Give it the credit it deserved. That is a dandy buck.

    Good job.

    Well the season finale went as good as I could of hoped for.

    I pre-scouted the unit thoroughly starting in September and got permission on some prime habitat. I bowhunted the unit earlier in the year, but did not find any shooter bucks. As the weather dropped to well below zero, I left for my final four day hunt of 2008 starting Nov 19. The first day started well, with close to a dozen bucks (and two potential shooters) spotted early in the day, with several more that have some potential in the future. At the end of the first day, I spotted a beauty bedded out in the open. After closely looking him over, and seeing extra points and stickers, I decided I needed to get closer for a better look. Well once in position, it didn't take much more to convince me he was a shooter. 8x8 and grosses 178" and a battler with many points broken and chipped! What a season for both me and my new 300 RUM.....rest assured, I have been buying plenty of lottery tickets.

    I knew you had either problems, or were otherwise tied up!
    Not to worry.....
    my Mom lives over by West Ed Mall, and haven't been up for a visit for awhile.
    Have to pick up some more MAG primers-if I can find any!
    Back to work tomorrow for ten, then five off. Will be a good chance to get some Christmas shopping in as well.
    I am hoping the Tikka T3 Lite in 22-250 I won will be here soon. Between it and the AR 180 B, I should be ready for 'yotes!

    Will give ya a call....
    LeRoy.
