Took the buck on the first morning, but put nearly 30 hours in the blinds before taking the doe on the last day there. The Shirley Basin is awesome - absolutely gorgeous.

Remember the Ark was built by amateurs, the titanic by professionals.

I am sorry I missed you but will happily take you up on a rain-check for another year. Very nice buck buddy!!

Hey Marty, saw a huge muley standing in that creek just outside Medicine Bow. That was the only Muley I saw on the trip; didn't see or hear any elk - guess the basin isn't for them. Joel hunts Laramie Peak...in fact he's there right now.

Come back and we'll chase some animals

We found lots of cattle watering holes - that's the hot ticket when rut's still a ways off.
Last night there it rained like a son-of-a-gun. I was alone and loving it. Unfortunately when water holes are all you have for a tactic rain kind of ruines it. Imagine my surprise when I awoke the next morning and the ground was BONE dry. Wow. That place is dry. Anyway, I needed to break camp and head east, so I left with my last doe tag in my pocket. I've been talking to Marilyn about flying out in rifle season and bringing her with me. She's thinking about it.

Just finished another pronghorn steak dinner with the family - man do I love pronghorn steaks! Very tender and tasty.
Next week we'll give the pronghorn roast a try. Tomorrow night we're having two families over for pronghorn burger and steaks on the barbie. Word's getting around.
