Beautiful country and an awesome specimen!
What caliber is the camo cannon?
The hanging bag was our food, we kept it up there to keep the bears and other critters out of it, it was mostly just freeze dried stuff (mountain house meals, etc...) but we were in the middle of Griz country and didn't want to take any chances.
It is some of the most beautiful country in the world, amazing experience!
The desert camo beast is my Barrett model 99 50 BMG, we had it set up in a secondary camp at 9000 feet overlooking a burn area....didn't use it, ended up shooting my elk with the 30/06 at 300 yards up on top around 10,000ft elevation, Our main camp was about 8200 feet, so we definitely put on some miles/climbing on that trip!
