Re: Filled my Wyoming General elk tag!

Thanks for the kind words guys, it is a hunt (and pack out) I will never forget. D.Camilleri, we were hunting in SE Wyoming, unit 15 I believe it was.

But, hey, that's what keeps me goin'.
Antelope for me, got it worked out to use the tip of the bottom duplex as an aim point. Cut hair high. It was fortunately a follow up shot that wasn't needed. I like the goat pic Roy.

Well done!

I remember that sick feeling (happened only once, but ya *always* remember it) on a non-DRT shot and minimal blood trail. For me, it was with an iron-sighted long shot (~525yds) on a whitetail.... tracked for about 1/2 a mile and found her piled up (was a pass-through neck shot grazed her carotid artery).

Great trophy and I'm sure you'll be enjoying that set of antlers for years to come and the steaks through the winter!

Re: Filled my Wyoming General elk tag!

Lets seeeee. You pulled the ivory's on the cow and left the horns but took the horns on the bull and left the ivory. It's happened to more than one of us. Congrats on the hunt and filling your home with good tasting grub!
