    Thanks, I'll be praying for myself! The pictures of the area are greatly deceiving. That terrain is a LOT steeper than the pictures present it to be. I gopher and coyote hunt there all summer trying to get in shape, but it really doesn't help much lol. The elk there are just too smart and can see too much.

    This was my favorite photo of the 2010 season. The elk were scared to death of something for over an hour and we see this come over the ridge. We laughed for a good 20 minutes after we figured out what it was that had them spooked. We thought for sure it was a pack of wolves.



    And this was from a different location, but just shows our group's luck for the year. We spot a small herd of elk at first light, start moving into position for a shot on the herd bull, and this truck comes flying up the road. We heard several shots and found out the guy had a cow tag. OY!

    Well, I took a family friend of mine (former game warden) out to the private land these sheep are on. We watched the herd for about 2 hours before the big boy stepped out. The guy has shot a 191 ram himself on the Missouri Breaks, and was a warden for over 20 years. He estimated the one I'm after at 170-175. Then he spotted one that he thinks within a few years should be in the 180 range. Needless to say, I was pretty excited to hear that. I put in for the tag for this season, but my odds are against me (which is a good thing this time). I just wanted to get my name in there and get some points for the future. If they stay healthy, these guys could be whoppers in 4-5 years.
