    2 weeks from today huntr and i will be in unit 72 right now putting a nice buck to bed. then a nice steak dinner and a good nights sleep out on the ranch in tents. ( i'm bringing an air bed !)

    up before day light to where we put a nice buck to bed and await daylight to hopefully start it off with a nice buck for huntr.
    then the fun begins with a total of 8 doe tags in hands !

    Our opener is Sept. 11th in a spot west of Laramie.

    Have not been there before, so we'll be there a day or two earlier to look it over.

    Got the .257Wby dialed in dead-on at 300 for a 100 gr. BT @ 3500fps, so I should be ok.

    Good luck to all WY hunters gun).
