1st mulie worth shooting

Last day of the season, we set out for the high country hopeing to find something bigger than the spikes,forks and small 3x3s we have been seeing for a few years along the south fork of the Powder.
I wish I could say I worked my ***** off for him or it was a long shot but after glassing and hikeing a lot of miles over the years this guy just stands there @ 75 yards and lets me shoot him.
Not a monster by any means but it does prove even a blind hog can find an acorn if he spends enough time at it.



Might have found a new spot to hunt goats too...... @ 8500 feet!



Not enough light for a good pic but these guys where monsters!!

Nice buck! Look at it as finally getting payed for those tough/unsuccessful hunts...
And motivation to go after those high altitude monster goats.

The rifle is an old tang safty Ruger in seven mag, a 3-9 Sightron with a mildot reticle. It aint a tack driver but for some reason its a critter-getter to 750 yards......But this year it has only had to go to 250 for the first goat,233 for the second and I doubt it was 70 yards to the mulie buck.

Been a long time coming for a decent mulie. Ate my general tag last year and turned down a few smaller bucks this year......You guessed right about going after those monster goats, have drawn 63 tags the last couple of years but will try to draw to that area next year! Have not always filled tags with trouphy critters but the only unsuccessful hunt I think I have ever had was last fall whitetail hunting= Ditched the Tahoe on the way back to Minnesota and had to return to Casper. Otherwise if I'm out hunting its a success
