I have been blessed with some great hunts in 2017.

First I had an early doe antelope tag. I was hoping the does wouldn't be skittish during the early (August 1st opener) season. Alas, they were just as paranoid as ever.
I had to break out my husband's .338LM so I could take a precision 630 yard shot on a bedded doe. (I read somewhere on this forum that I needed a 300 grain bullet to kill stuff, heh)

She bedded facing away from me and I was able to put the bullet through the middle of her neck. Luck? Skill? Whatever, I'll take it. (Huge thanks to my hubby for having his rifle so perfectly doped out)

Then it was on to archery elk. I also had a dedicated hunter buck tag but I was only seeing smaller bucks that needed another year or three (for me, I don't care what other people shoot).

After many elkless, or elk just out of range hunts, I finally had a small 6x6 bull push a cow right to me. I shot her at 12 yards and she dropped 27 yards from me. The bull was sooo confused.

This is my first archery elk. I'm only pulling 43 pounds (bad shoulder) but the 365 grain arrow with a 3 blade muzzy head sunk right to the fletching.

I had to call my husband, and also my hunting buddy to pack her out. Neither complained... too much.

Then on to buck deer. I saw the buck I was after during the muzzleloader season but couldn't get closer than 360 yards. Too far.

I went back after him during rifle season. This time I was carrying my tikka 300wm. I got lucky on the third morning I hunted and found him at only 330 yards. A 150 gr Barnes TTSX dropped him on the spot.

I really like this thread as well, but it has quiet for a while.
Thought I might jump start it.

So, here is a picture of my grandson and I with our bucks from last fall.
His was muzzle, and mine was rifle. (We kept his in the freezer and boiled them out together).
First time I've rifle hunted since they made us pick a hunt. Can't remember what year that was.....
His out scored mine, I'm still getting heat !!!!
