Thanks guys. It was a good trip. Ten days away from home, and Mama, was a bit much. We had intended for her to accompany me. The two of us have been separated too many times, for too long, throughout our 33 year marriage. I don't like that. But... Work called and she had to cancel.
So off I went, solo. It turned out to be a great adventure anyway, and I met some good folks along the way. Had hoped to see 6mmRemington & Fotis at least while on the trip, but that just didn't work out.
Had very little "down time" once the actual hunt started... Up early, out late, lots of walking, lots of glassing. Loved it.
Highlight was watching a 20 minute bout between two adult mulie bucks! Wow! I'd never seen mulie bucks fight so hard and so long before! Really wish I'd had a decent video camera to record that.
I didn't get as many good photos as I would have liked, but enough to capture the gist of the hunt.
Hopefully I can continue to hunt this area, at least every other year, if not every year. I enjoy the trip.
Be very careful about stopping in Big Timber Montana though - a fellow could end up with a Sharps rifle real easy...
Thanks Guy, That sounds like terrific performance from the .25-06, 115 gr BT at that velocity and range! My .257 R pushes the 110 AB at 3145 fps. They should be close on antelope. Good going on the clean kills BTW.
