Not as high as Sneaky's hunt but this flatlander was huffing and puffing. 7K was highest I went.
Spotted a buck at 1100 yards. Repositioned to this rock and watched as he bedded down.
He’s below the three rocks to the right that looked like frogs to me, at least after I stared at them for 4 hours which is how long I sat there. There was coyote den just below me but didn’t get any pictures of their coming and goings. Helped pass the time watching them though. He eventually jumped up and took off running to the left.
Hit him just behind the shoulder with the 300 Win Mag and after a short run, down he went!
And there he is! If you look up from the middle of his antlers you’ll see the rock I was sitting on.
(An ugly rifle is not required to kill deer.)
He’s not a monster but I worked hard for him and couldn’t be happier.
I was hoping for a lot of snow in Colorado to kickoff the migration but didn't happen till the very end of the hunt. We saw lot's of resident deer and elk so really didn't mind.
Shot mine on the 3rd day and my buddy got his on the 4th day.
Weather turned bad on 5th day but we were headed back to Texas.
