    Darn it. Typed up a nice story to go along with this thread and when I went to post it, this damn server had logged me out and I lost the entire thread!!! Len, this sucks! Logging in twice to type one post stinks. I wish we could go back to the old format of a few years ago! Now I only have time to put up a paragraph and some pictures.


    Bull number 2. Five days later. 670 yards. One shot, one kill. Much nicer bull. Used the 300 grain SMK instead of the 225 AB. Mushroom found on opposite side just under hide. No bone encountered. Nice wound channel through the lungs and big shock to the vitals.
    Happy hunter. Sore muscles.

    If I think I may be typing a long post, I open up a word processor or notebook on my desktop and save it. Then that way if something happens, you have the original copy.

    Nice pictures. I love his symmetry. Looks great! 2 thumbs up!! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Beautiful bull! Congrats to all.

    X2 on the notepad/word. Copy/paste. Way less frustrating.

    Congrats, Blair, good shootin' and a good Bull ( and a bunch of good friends ) You've waited a long time for this tag and you did yourself proud !!! It doesn't hurt to have GG and the Thunder around when you need to go long. LOL!!!

    We need to start calling GG , Paladin, and get business cards printed up that say, Have Gun, Will Travel !!!! The ol' Thunder has added up a lot of yardage in the last few years!!!

    Great job Grouper, as always!! You have "unselfishly" helped a lot of folks get the Job done over the years !!! -------- RHB

    PS-- please rewrite the story on Word and paste it here for us. I'm sure everyone is interested in hearing the tale.

    Nice bull! How come you guys didn't cape him out? Hell, even if you don't mount them, there cape is still worth $100.00.

    Way to go GG! Another happy hunter!
    What will he score? Maybe 340+? A shooter in my book for sure. I have 6 elk points now for Utah, can't wait until I draw a tag for a crack at those big bulls!

    Congratulations GG, was expecting to see a thread about a long range elk kill from you.
    +1 with past posts: please rewrite the story, it looks like we all enjoy reading your hunting threads.
    Great buck, thanks for posting.
