This is my bull I got on a DIY drop camp hunt in Alaska. My first trip to Alaska but not my last!

Shot him at 300 yards with factory 180gr E tips from my 300 win mag. I put 2 behind the shoulder at 300 yards and he only went 30 yards. My buddy used the same load and his dropped in it's tracks with a 500 yard shot. Great bullet so far!

Thanks everyone. I'm afraid Alaska already has a hold on me, I'm already researching caribou and a Kodiak Sitka Blacktail hunt has been on the radar for a few years. I want to book another moose hunt too, more plans than time!

The story will come but we are looking at trying to write an article so it might have to wait just a bit.

Not the greatest photo, but it's all I've got. A very average pronghorn, taken at about 250 yards with a 165 gr Nosler Ballistic Tip from my 30-06 rifle.

This is the exit wound. The entrance was just behind the opposite side fore-leg. Very quick kill, and that little buck didn't go anywhere but down:

I did think it was pretty funny that I ended up using the smaller rifle on the bigger mule deer buck, and the bigger rifle on the smaller pronghorn buck... :)

No doubt that little buck will provide some excellent meals, Guy.

Thanks Guy, looks like you are having a great season too! Alaska is awesome and I can't wait to go back, but I miss going west too. Next year my points say I should be hunting Wyoming elk for my big trip, so I'll get another trip west then. Maybe a scouting trip to Colorado for muleys too next I'm getting enough points there that they are burning a hole in my pocket and I need to make that hunt happen. I want to do a little scouting and get a unit picked before I apply. 2020 will probably be CO muleys or back to AK for caribou.

A couple of fine bulls. Congratulations to each of you. Wow! That will be a lot of meat for the freezer.
