Randy. Great write up, and even better pictures. How much does checkmate weight?

Any predator sighting?

Congratulations to you and your brothers! You are certainly having a good year. Kinda spoils a guy to spend a few days in "paradise".

Great hunt and pictures. That looks like the White Clouds off in the distance.

You bet it's nice---I am very fortunate to live here. Invitation is always open for you to come out and enjoy.

Kyle, she is right at 10 lbs with everything and no sign of wolves, although lots of big kitty tracks.

Mike, it is the white clouds in the distance. Gotta love this part of Idaho.

Re: "Checkmate" wins #2/Backpacking hunt trip

Your story makes a man want to be there!

Great country for sure.

I'm thinking from the experience a couple of weeks ago that this will be my last year humping around the 9000' level.

Great buck, great shot.

It's sure nice when a good rig brings it all together!

Go get some puppies.........
