The lord has blessed me! Last year I had one day to hunt for myself in archery, and I shot a 6x7, this year I had one day to hunt in rifle, took one of my guides with me. We did a nasty hike in, and turned up a canyon I thought they might be, shot him at 440 yards in his bed at 3:20pm. Tough angle but I got it up through his chest, he stood and faced me and I hit him again in the throat, dropped in his bed.

Tell us about the 4.5 mile pack out. That's seems more challenging than the hunt
