...four legged critters with hooves." was rather redundant as I'm sure these things don't exist. Posted Image

The rest of the story...

The four boys from Pa. and I left Denver Thurdays morning @ 3:30 am. We had a rendez-vous with my younger sister, a good friend (Mark Perry-a dear mate with cancer), and three cajuns from Louisana. We passed through Laramie, Wy. and headed northwest towards the town Of Medicine Bow. We arrived around 7:00 am. It didn't take long to get into antelope. Phil and Woodhick set out together; I took the other two lads from Pa. My sister and Mark hunted with the three gents from La. Chris Laylon was the first to draw blood, he shot a small buck-he became confused when the herd of 40 animals started mixing up in front of us. I shot the next two does. Chris followed with his first doe and second goat. The wind was hollowing! It made hunting a bear! Phil dropped a nice 14 incher while spot and stalk hunting on his own. He pulled off a brilliant 400 yard, straight into the wind, shot. Chris, Phil, and I spent the rest of the day retrieving the "fast food" from the bush (or lack thereof). Paul from Pa. scored a doe later in the day. Woodhick finished the day with his own buck. All in all, 3 bucks and 9 does were taken. We spent this morning processing all the meat.

The guys are now on their way to the mountains. We'll be hunting elk in the hood tomorrow!

Wow sounds like you guys got em all. At least so far I would say that the flatlanders accounted very well for them and us. Look out elkies the PA boys are after you.

A hearty COngrats to you all. Fotos will follow we hope. I intended to call the guys in Salida, I guess they're there, and go see them this afternoon and eve. Maybe eat supper or somthing. But I FORGOT. A gun guy and I went to a gun show in Canon City and I lost my memory. Maybe ewhen Woody comes Wed or Thurs or Fri we can get up to Salida to see them PA boys.
