hunted 4th rifle cow in 421. We got a co-worker of mine his just before sundown opening day, decent amount of snow, had to gut and quarter her in the dark and pack the quarters down but it was only maybe 1/4 mile (but steep and rough).
Got mine Friday AM, we saw them, hiked in around the ridge to a meadow and they were going up a slide on the ridge (327yds). Put a Partition through both shoulders (I pulled it out from just under the hide on the other side) and she piled up right there. Managed to get the Ranger in about 50 feet from it so we gutted it and tossed it on the back.
