    I drive out of Oregon if I really want to kill an Elk.

    Got 4 points to draw west Blues spring bear tag so that's the start.

    Got 15 points for antelope and should be about 75% to draw Hart Mt bow tag.

    Other than those two will hunt general archery deer and elk both west side around my house and maybe get east for a week for elk.

    Putting in for other tags but not expecting to draw much else.

I spent 15 days finding and following this buck and it paid off.
    The funny thing was I knew he was a 'booner' but I had a hard time judging him because his head was so damn big. The taxidermist refered to him as a 'mule head' and said he had the biggest head of any antelope he had ever seen. He had to order a special form and modify it. He always ran with a bunch of does and I never saw another buck around him until one day a 13" buck ran in and tried to impress his girls and my buck ran him off. It'd nice being able to compare a 13" buck to a heavy 17" buck.
    I'm only at 10 points, I still have a 5 year wait ahead of me, but there is always the chance someone in the clan will hit on a random tag.

    CRIT'R, thanks for the compliments. He is 17" with 7 4/8" prongs and 6 7/8" around the bases. Carries his mass through all of his circumference measurements.
