My buddy from Laramie also has a buck tag, but my other friend driving in from California only drew the two doe tags - no buck tag. He's still pretty stoked about going.

MAN I can't WAIT!

Huck talked me into trying for speed goats last fall and what a thrill. Trying to stalk those sharp eyed buggers was a wonderful challenge. I hope to try and get Seth out to WY next year for a crack at em!

Oh I will! Thanks.

Casey and I did some "long range" shooting last night and it's obvious I'm going to have to make a few changes. First, I took my adjustable sight off and replaced it with a G5 three pin for midwest hunting - must swap back to achieve 50 and 60 yards.

Also, to be more stable in the wind I may add a heavier stabilizer.

In addition, the whisker biscuit (so I'm told) adds variability past 40 yards, so I may go with a full capture drop away - considering the rip cord. Any suggestions on a full capture drop away specifically good on long distances?
