...a 6 & 1/2 year-old billy and a beautiful lady.

The day before I was taken to my physical limit and beyond , trying to get to a 10" billy before it got too late in the day. I couldn't make it and I quite possibly would have blown the shot from exhaustion anyways.

The general area:

The approach to recover. He was still a ways up over the top lip of the drainage in the picture.

He stopped and looked back at "his" nanny just as I shot. The bullet went high through his shoulder and clipped the back of his skull and brain, hence the blood. About 155 yards with a .300WM, shooting off a mossy boulder (that dropped off straight to the water eek ), shooting across the drainage.

bring flowers and be effusive with praise on her giving you the time off and space you could get to this point. Play it up, player!

Congratulations on your successful hunt. I can't even imagine the physical effort it takes to hunt that beautiful but rugged country.
