I thought I would post a few pics from my hunt in Northern NM.
It was raining off and on and was walking to the spot for the morning setup. Stopped and called and all of a sudden a bull screamed from about a 100 yards away! He started coming straight at me, breaking branches and making a hell of a racket. I got my rifle ready and saw him at about 60 yards but couldn't get a shot. He kept coming and at 42 yards shot him, he ran back the way he came and I heard him crash. I felt good about the shot (300 Win Mag), waited about 15 minutes and went to look for him. He's a mature 5X4. Not a huge trophy but I'm very happy with him.
Love the mountains but hope you are in shape, 9000 ft. is no joke!
