Well I took my .300 wsm this year and just had factory 180g loads as I didn’t have time over the summer to work on a new load as planned, had actually planned to load for my .308 and bring it due to weight. Shot was 250 steep down hill and then a follow up shot at about 40 yards after some tracking. Really just ended up in the right place at the right time, but it was a ton of work to get to “the right place”

Got back last night. My boots might be dry by the time the modern opener comes around. Good thing I have a second pair! Saw deer, nothing legal, tried chasing after one bear, but he vanished before we were close enough for a shot.

That's a stud of a buck!  Headed up tomorrow, not really expecting to tag out but excited nonetheless.  And not that wet except for Sunday ;)

I was up at 7200 feet from Saturday 9/14 until late yesterday night. Had 2 full days of ideal hunting conditions (clear, bearable wind)

We battled fog, rain, snow constantly. Temps in the low 30s. Deer were acting funny and weren't in any of their usual hidey holes. On the bad days I still hunted timber at various elevations and still couldn't turn up a decent buck.

Pretty miserable hunt, not going to lie, but hammered a nice bear to end the hunt yesterday.
