Thanks everyone I might see one everyother year with no opportunity for a clean shot but everything worked out this year.  300 RUM put it down with one shot. I would put it at 200 lbs +/- not a lot of fat on it.

That will be a quality lifetime memory for you both!
As long as we have the habitat, we can argue forever about who gets to kill what and when.  No habitat = no game.
