    Nice. Where were you hunting at?

    RFurman, where’s the story behind that stag kill?

    The hunt I went on was with Non Typical Outfitters. We hunted out of their Big Park camp. The area they took me into was steep but there was a lot of open country. We saw 9 bulls before 8 am. We set up at a glassing point. We had 2 groups of cows and bulls come out but we could still hear the bull I killed in the timber. He finally came out and got to where I could shoot. 535 yards. I hurt him with the first round, 2 round dropped him like a rock. (so we thought) He got back up and walked down hill toward some aspens. 3 more rounds sent over him. Finally my guide settled me down got me on a solid rest. I sent round 6 at 646 yards and down he went. I shoot 180 grain Bergers out of a 7mm.

    Nice. Got the job done. Sometimes, to break up the monotony of the same old bedtime stories, I read my boys hunting stories and articles from on here so they have something to ponder before they fall asleep.
