Re: 2010 WY elk pics from a Bronx kid!

This was a guided hunt in western WY with Non-Typical Outfitters. 6 out of 7 that week shot bulls. The 7th guy missed two different bulls. Back at camp his gun was 7" left of center at 100 yds! One shot he took was at over 400 yds.

The second week some one took a nice bull as well.
My bull green scored 307.

I didn't go out with 400 class bull on my mind. I feel fortunate to have had the opportunity to hunt the country (public land) they live in on horse back no less and to have a mature male on my wall to see as my grays grow in regardless of score is just a blessing!

Way to go!
A 300 yd shot when you are suckin air from an uphill sprint is certainly not a gimme.
I've seen guys miss a 50 yd shot in that situation. And many guys hunt a lifetime without getting a nice mature 6 pt like yours. Congrats.
What part of WY were you in ? If outfitted, who was you with ?

Re: 2010 WY elk pics from a Bronx kid!

Thanks for the kind words danman,

Rob Wiley and his camp are genuine, passionate, hard hunting folk who raised an eyebrow when I passed on two 5x5s the first day. (not having shot an elk before).

I was soul searching the second day!

The third morning opportunity knocked and my guide made the right choices to give us the shot.

He is only 21 years old and did the taxidermy to boot!
