    Haha no joke it was some major glassing before we found this guy lol. Actually if we would have flipped the camera 180° when we took the picture you would see a big cedar mtn. They were in the rolling sage hills moving up to the cedars. The heard bull actually gave me the slip. I had him at 700 but im just not comfortable at that distance yet. So I looped around to get ahead of them and the satellite bulls were right there in the next bowl.
    Thanks guys, and thanks for all the help I've gotten being a "newb" to reloading and long shots
