Just returned from the Bighorns, had a wonderful trip like usual. Shot this 5x5 the second day. I got a little greedy as I passed up a 4x4 to get a shot at this buck, he was trailing the 4x4 by about 25 yards. He went about 80 yds. blood pouring out both sides. The heart was untouched so I must have taken the aorta artery out. The first day I passed on a small buck and also had two bull elk at 18 yds. Most of the deer seemed tobe feeding in the timber as the meadows were burnt to a crisp by the sun.

Jen, I stopped at a camp that had a couple of dogs to see if it was you, but no luck. They said they didn't know you, so I assumed they live under a rock or something. Maybe we can meet next trip. Good luck in your hunt.

Yes that is counting the eye guards. I had a hard time suppressing the urge to say he was a ten pointer:) I passed up a couple of bucks before shooting this one, a small one and a 4x4. My buddy told me to get greedy this year, so I did. It's very easy for me to get greedy. Personality flaw, I guess. I also had two bull elk at 18-20 yds., but no tag. This was in the Bighorns. I did kill a decent buck last year but not as nice as this one. The Bighorns have been good to me. The key has been to get off the roads and up on the ridges, too much traffic and road hunters by the roads. I like rimrock(hint, hint).
