Finally made it back from WY and I think with the weather up there and all the game I could've stayed for an extra week. There were canada geese & ducks, prairie dogs galore, turkey and goats everywhere. The only thing we didn't see was a good whitetail and I had a tag.

Wished we could've hunted antelope the whole time but there were so many good bucks that I knocked one over the first day. We scouted this really nice one that I had dead-to-rights at 200yds but my gun didn't go bang when I pulled the trigger. I had a bullet in and my pin dented the primer but it clicked. That's always a cool feeling. Guess I didn't have the bolt all the way down or something. Anyway, I cycled in another round and found him closer to 300 when I sent a shot off right over his back. He and his harem went bye-bye after that.

Caught up to this fella right at dark trying to fend off another buck that had eyes on his group of does. We got in to about 150yds and it was all over! Tall grass this year and super-healthy animals. Can't wait to go back.

I hunted with a group called Chairbound Hunters and they do great work up there. I always donate a little and help spread the word. Big Al is starting to take Wounded Soldiers too now.
