What does this make me?

Postby phutch30 » Sun Oct 30, 2011 4:52 pm

I went out this morning with the intention of helping my buddy find a moose, in fact I didnt even bring a rifle. We got up around 7000 feet in the head of a drainage and started glassing right at first light. Right away I picked up movement. I thought it was a elk calf at first then a muley since Ive never seen a deer here let alone a whitetail buck. As he was working his way up the bottom along the willows I tried to point him out to my buddy but his $25 walmart special binos couldnt pick him up. So I asked if I could borrow his rifle for a couple min. I got out of the truck and dropped into a little finger tributary and ran to cut the buck off. I almost made it. 1/2 way there my calves started burning and I couIdnt run anymore so I slowed down which let him get ahead of me. So instead of a nice 100 yard broadside I got a 275 yard quarterning shot. Threw down my pack, settled in and dropped him. Little did I know how lucky this shot really was. I got back and said to my buddy "your guns right on, I hit right where I was holding. He said great! I havent shot it this year and went to heavier bullets. I started to say something but didnt and just continued on my high. 6"+ bases, 21"main beams and 11 and 10" g3s, only 14 wide though

To top it off on the way to another basin, we had a herd of 50 elk with a nice 6x6 run right to us.....I wont go into how no shots were fired at 4 legal bulls and a bunch of also legal cows. But we had that 6x6 at well under 150 yards for 3-4 min at 5 or 6 different angles trying to commit suicide and no shots.....I got a little frustrated. Especially, since THE WHOLE %$#$^& TIME THEY WERE UNDER 200 YARDS FROM THE ^%$# TRUCK!

Gay. Not that there is anything wrong with that.

Nice bull and buck. Spent my weekend hunting solo with a total of twelve ducks and two geese killed last two days. Now you can concentrate on killing some waterfowl.

I can concentrate all I want, but until we get some birds not going to have much luck. Plus I have a cow tag to fill still. Then Im off to alberta for whitetails THEN i can get giggy with the ducks.

nice buck! I once watched a guy run out of bullets launching them at a high 300s bull from about 175 yds. It just stood there broadside wondering why all the rocks around it kept exploding.

Maybe I'm missing something? Why didn't you fill your cow tag as well?
Did your buddy have an Elk tag yet to fill? He could have used the rifle
and you could have just run one down with your Bowie knife in your teeth.
That's what Chuck Norris would have done anyway.

At any point after did you see just how the rifle was shooting?
What cal. and what was the difference in ammo ? Sounds
almost as bad as when you took that Flat Lander Turkey
hunting.

We wernt in my cow unit.
yes he had a elk tag and his rifle with the safty off
I could have thrown a rock and almost killed one if I had flock shot as your prone to do.

I dont know if he froze or what.

He was shooting a 7mm and no he didnt shoot it. he had 170gr and 160 grain bullets....I have no idea what grain I shot the deer with.

Ya the yahoos who dont shoot thier guns stress me out when crunch time comes and they cant perform.

Ive been known to have a few problems performing at crunch time. Viagra helps though.
