    Riley great hunt, on another note, its my personal opinion that you should consider writing up these stories for some out door magazines. I think you have a great mind for writing, I am constantly amazed at what I read from you. I am of course only comparing you to how I was a 15 years old.

    Riley, U DA MAN!!!

    I understand about the 5 MOA miss thing. That's why, on my carry gun, the reticle is in the FFP. I can still see that trophy 4X4 and where every shot impacted, just over his back, cus I thought I was on 9X and was on 3X. I can't seem to grasp all variables when antlers are in view. But, hey, that's what keeps me goin'.

    Congratulations Riley! I am very glad your hunt went better than last year. Sorry we never got togather this year. If you draw next year I will make sure we get togather. Hunts like this only last a few days but the memorys last alife time. The lost ivories just add to them.

    Riley! Awesome. I'm crazy jealous. That is an awesome first bull and a great story. That 284 is getting some serious use.
