Well I have had some success this hunting season.
I spent a week in the Bighorn mtns and came away w/ one 3pt buck deer and no elk.
Turned around yesterday and went to Medicine Bow Forest where I had my additional cow elk tag. Set came up at 3PM and shot the elk at sundown. Just happened into a herd of about 20.
I plan on going to Jackson on Monday to hopefully fill the other elk tag. No pics,,,no trophies, just food.

Not to bad either. I have taking one whitetail Buck this year, but only have hunted 3 times. I shot him at about 180 yards at O dark thirty (705pm) while loading my blind into the truck. He was across the field from me.

I've seen several does, fawns and a fork-horn. A few nights ago, this big boy stepped out into a pasture 400+ yds from my blind. He never got close enough for my tastes and we ran out of light. Got a chance to go back tonight and he got under my self-imposed 300 yd. limit. Not the best shot in the world but I watched him fall so he wasn't hard to find.

Thanks. The rifle in question is a Rem. 700 ADL syn. in 30-06 with a Simmons 44 Mag 3-9x40 scope. The load used was a 150 gr. Win. PowerPoint over 57gr. of IMR-4350.
