Wyoming Buck
« on: September 24, 2022, 08:30:56 AM »
I killed this buck last week at 10,167 feet. I watched him walk across a high basin and bed in the the pines at the top of an avalanche chute. One shot from my 6.5 x .284 with handloaded 130 gr. Berger VLD's did the trick.
We saw lots of bucks had a lot of rain and snow and even had a visit by a Bear that tore up and scattered my buddies food.

Very nice! A hunt I’d love to do some day. Did you go with an outfitter or was it DIY?

This was a DIY hunt.
The rain was bad, tough to dry out in those conditions. The clouds and fog didn't help either.

Stud Buck, and Stud hunter  :tup:

Hunting at 10K elevation in the rain is an adventure itself. Thanks for sharing that beautiful country with us.

Thank you for all the kind words.
A few details of the hunt...
We back packed in 4.5 miles with only 1500 feet of vertical gain, 2 days before the hunt started.
Weather was very wet. It rained at our camp site day and night and snowed up where I was hunting at 10,000 feet but, it never really stuck for long.
We had a Bear get into a food cache and spread it all over the hill side. When we got to camp the first evening there was a 24" 4 point eating the remnants of the food. He could care less if we were there or not. He would come up to 20 yards of us.
It was some of the most beautiful country I have had the pleasure to hunt.
This was the only hunt I put in for this year (due to time constraints) other than OIL's and it did not disappoint.
Thanks for looking, Steve
