 :tup:  Love that country. Congrats. 

Look at it this way, after spending time at 12k you'll think the Cascades are just little foothills.

Is the taxi able to save the velvet or is he reapplying the synthetic? Either way beautiful buck with a beautiful coat. Great looking hunt. Congrats.

He should be able to save the velvet. I brought it to him because he works with lots of velvet bucks and does great velvet buck mounts. Monarch Mountain Taxidermy in south Jordan Utah is doing the work.

You put the "high" in high buck hunt for sure.  The altitude down there is very tough to deal with for sure, congrats on getting it done on a velvet buck!

Getting to hunt the high Rockies is awesome - harvest is just a bonus.  :tup:
As long as we have the habitat, we can argue forever about who gets to kill what and when.  No habitat = no game.

"When my bow falls, so shall the world. When me heart ceases to pump blood to my body, it will all come crashing down. As a hunter, we are bound by duty, nay, bound by our very soul to this world. When a hunter dies we feel it, we sense it, and the world trembles with sorrow. When I die, so shall the world, from the shock of loosing such a great part of ones soul." Ezekiel, Okeanos Hunter
