So really, back to fishing soon.

So, if you don’t big game hunt, you probably don’t think about these parts of it.  This is how you feel when you really can’t believe that that hundreds of miles you hiked, the weeks you spent scouting, the years you spent practicing your shooting and calling, all paid off at once.

oooh boy.

This is my hunting partner Pete just taking it all in right after we got to his bull.

Mikey, coming in for the congratulatory tackle. There is nothing like the relief of finding your animal, knowing you shot well and he died quickly and humanly, and you have good friends there who will stick with you until the meat is all packed and out of the woods.

For more picks check the comment section.

As for the fishing,

The trout fishing has been super fun, the steelhead has been alright, and the salmon are starting to splash around, the weather is great.  The rivers are empty, good times.  I will be back guiding in 4 days.

    Thats Madeline, Lauren,me, Uncle Mike Z, and Uncle Pete with his bull. I don’t think you could do a better job of calling, stalking and really clutch shooting than Pete did on this one. Truly masterful.
    Awesome bull, and honest 5×7 with plenty of “extra” points.
