HELL.. I'd think you were some Rich out a shape fugger that shot it on a game farm smilies/smile.gif smilies/biggrin.gif smilies/biggrin.gif

BUT, I'd still give you the THUMBS up even though I didn't know that wasn't true smilies/wink.gif

I know when I came back from Montana with the rack hanging out, Although the picture wasn't as cool with my old '97 Chevy, Every time I stopped at a gas station I'd have to tell my MADE up story about 6 times smilies/elkgrin.gif And, I never got the finger but alot of thumbs up !!!!!

KUDOS to a great picture !!!!!!!

Thanks all,
I'm glad you liked the pics. smilies/smile.gif That front view is pretty wicked smilies/eek.gif The official Pope and Yound score was 350 2/8 net and 364 and some change gross. smilies/elkgrin.gif I will post an after picture of the avalanche soon!

Az402: I probably got more stares!! of course I did get a good finger pointing from a state mounty in NM for going 80 MPH in a 65 MPH speed zone!!! smilies/eek.gif He must have been a fellow hunter he didn't pull me and give me a ticket!!

Tom: Antlers survived, as a matter of fact there a whole lot better in tact than I am!

Moosie: Rich out of shape Fugger? Sometimes I think I wish I was!! Well rich anyway!! Enlisted Marines surely don't get rich!! I just ain't got any youngin's to care for!!! I thought people might think that though!! But, all that mattered to me was knowing the real truth!! I busted my NADS on this hunt!! Moosie, look on the brightside, the fact that you even drive a chevy says alot for your intelligence smilies/biggrin.gif smilies/elkgrin.gif

Bulldown: Chevy commercial!! LOL, hell ya I'm with ya!! I could certainly use the royalties to fund my next elk hunt!! Unguided of course!! The 3rd's were 21 1/2" and 18 1/2"s!

Schmalts: I'll shoot you an E-mail!

Left behind: I'm still here! Of course I'll have a hell of a time with airports for the rest of my life!! I have about 15 lag bolts in my hip!! Yup, broke my pelvis, fractured my foot, and nose, dislocated my foot, chipped the bone in my foot, got some stiches in my grill and a whole lotta scars! But, the upside is, It could have been alot worse!


DELW: Thanks!

Great pictures! Sorry to hear about the crash, it sounds like a bad one.

What did you hit, or who hit you with what? I've been in three cars that got totaled and never got anything but a bruise. I'm unbelievably lucky! They made for great stories. Especially the time I landed in a fishin' hole in Clear Creek outside of Boulder , CO!

Yup. Ithaca Model 37 is my favorite shotgun. Got a bunch of chukars and Huns with it today. Mild Jan. weather is making for some great bird hunting.

Wow! Two phone poles and a bunch of trees! That makes for a rough ride!
