Hi guys, tell me an old hunting story or something. You have to have something way back in the cobwebs! Or, in the words of a departed dear friend, "Make something up!"
Tidbit here: how about a current story from this year?
Did the Wyoming Montana two state hunt for Mule deer. I booked this hunt with one of Wyoming's finest (don't know that I can give ya the name here--but if you interested just PM me). Arrived in Newcastle Wyoming and got settled in. Hunting always seems to start with a short ride and then the climbing begins. We hiked up to around 5200 feet---that is the mile high club for the non climbers. Got to look over a lot of country and seen many deer over the first three days. My hunting partner was after a big whitetail and I was lookin for that mule deer. We got skunked for three days.
Off to Montana; drove 5 hours to get to Miles City and started hunting that afternoon. Luck was with us here and my partner Nick harvested a nice mulie that afternoon. One quick shot at 163 yards and the buck collapsed. Collected my deer that next morning and that was that: two deer in less than 24 hours. Good hunting with a good guide. No high scorers here but nice deer. Back to Newcastle to finish off the hunt. Got real luckey here and got that big whitetail for Nick.
A highlight on this trip was meeting Bob Carter from Carter Country. As some of you know Bob was a well known outfitter for many years and has drifted into the sporting goods business---I think he sells more hunting gear than anything else. This was a really good and satisfing hunt: outfitter exceeded our expectations and everything went about as planned. Cost was average and the deer were above average. We are happy hunters.
Sorry to get off the subject here: this is supposed to be about wild sheep. Off to Texas in March for that Aoudad...this is gonna be fun. I'll keep ya posted.
and thaks for asking,
Thanks tid, sounds like you guys had a great time. Good luck on your Aoudad hunt. Can you email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with info or web sites from your deer hunts? Thanks, Bill
