Keep it up and it will be an expensive season what with Taxidermy bills, new freezers and all.

Been having a pretty good year with the rifle already.

First weekend of rifle here in MT I found this elk bedded at daybreak. I waited for a few minutes until he stood, then 1 shot with the 6.5x284 at 400 yards put him right back in his bed. This was my first elk.View attachment 157523

4 days later I was off to SW Colorado for a 3rd season mule deer hunt. With a full freezer at home I was planning on helping a couple of buddies fill their first deer tags, but ended up by myself on the second day when I caught this guy moving early in the morning. I got set up and made a 525 yard shot with the same 6.5x284. The buck was 26" wide and green scored right at 170" gross.

Best part is I still have a deer tag in my pocket here in MT and a couple of more weekends to hunt. Hoping to add a nice whitetail for the trifecta.
Where you at in Montana? I'm in Livingston.
