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
