So I guess THIS is the LAST

So I guess THIS is the LAST update.... I leave tomorrow morning. The season won't open till Monday but it will give me four days in the unit to pin them down and see if the first season guys moved the goats around.

It is very stressfull having one of the Big 3 tags in your pocket. I had to step back, and re-realize that it is not about killing and about the experience. I was putting way too much pressure on myself.

No guarantees I'll be posting pictures of a dead goat when I get back but I will share stories and pics from the hunt. Good luck to anybody else who will be out there at the same time chasing bucks, bulls and bears!

Hawkeye out!

Very well ha. I posted the story in the Rocky Mtn section.

I've only got a couple more weeks before I find out if it officially makes the Pope and Young record books after the drying period but it shouldn't have any problems. For a 13 year old goat... it sure eats good!

Awesome!!!

Your dedication and hard work have rewarded you.

Congratulations of the goat and even more so for doing it with an obsolete weapons system.
