nevada archery muley down

well I left last Friday on my archery hunt after a few blown stalks and afew missed arrows I finally connected 7 days into it. when I first showed up I had the whole unit to myself it seemed I did not see anyone eles from the time I hit gravel road all the 80 miles up to my spot then once I got up to the mountain I spotted plenty of bucks 9 in the first night and more the next morning. now this area is one big bowl and the wind is ever changing so after plenty of blown stalks I had a few shots that I can make all the excuses for but bottom line it didn't happen I had chances at one 4x4 and plenty of 3x3, after a few days of frusteration and these bucks always being one step inhead of me I decided to move over to a different area I chucker hunt, where i've seen a few bucks but they are good bucks when they are found. in and again im the only one there right off the bat a bachelor herd of three 4x4s put a stalk and got right above them just to get busted by sagehen the next morning I got caught with my pants down by the same bucks just a few hundred yards and got busted again...the next day my wife and I were glassing and found a 10 pack bachelor herd. got close but they kept there distance just out side my 70 yard limit i set on live targets, so we headed back as the evening fell upon us and bam there they were like it was ment to be we raised up over the rim of the gully they were using and the majority of the bucks were still out of range but this 5x4 and his little forky freind strayed about 50 yards from me and i slipped a arrow threw his boiler room afew hours later and a few hundred yards up hill we found him pilled up in some tall sage man what a great hunt he aint one of the monsters i was after but after countless blow stalks missed arrows and 7 days im happy as all hell with him.

That is a nice buck. I still

That is a nice buck. I still have to wait a few more days before I head out.

A quick and simple way to resize the pictures is to email them to yourself and then save the pictures in the email.

Here is the long way, you can have them done quicker that it takes to type out the instructions.

Go to where the photo is stored on your computer but don't open it. Right click on the photo and select open with and then select Paint. Then on the top bar where it says File Edit View Image Colors Help select Image, then select Stretch/Skew. Then in the box that opens up change the percentage that is in the Horizontal and Vertical to at least 75% or even 50%. Then click OK. Then back to the top and select File and then Save As and save the resized photo and use that one in your post.

Congrats! I would not

Congrats! I would not hesitate for a second to take that buck, especially with archery equipment. Sounds like quite the area you have there, and you worked hard to close the deal. Again, congrats!
