Hereís my brief story on my hunt
:chuckle:

https://hunting-washington.com/smf/index.php/topic,214563.0.html



If I could change one thing, Iíd want a good photo with all the folks who helped me out. The cliffy nature of the location prevented a pic of Rainier10 and I from happening but I canít thank him enough for his help.
I canít thank you enough for inviting me. This hunt is definitely in my top five most memorable hunts.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

Every father should remember that one day his children will follow his example instead of his advice.

A whitetail I took in 2004.. I spent hundreds if not thousands of hours scouting and hunting this particular buck and for it all to work out and able to take him was the icing on the cake.

Exceptional  :tup: :tup:
Thanks for sharing

This is a tough one. How about one NA animal and one international.
My Washington state record muzzleloader Shiras and my 10 year old Himalayan blue sheep from Pakistan. Both epic hunts.

Ok, one for each of us:

Little Pathfinder's first deer 2016.  9 years old, 324 yards, one shot, DRT.
