That was a great post and pron. I love the whole adventure. The Meat looked just right for my taste. Very nice job. Wish my ankles were not shot. That is some great country for sure.

That bear scat looks like it was not that old.

Thanks
Rick

It stayed pretty moist. Granted, I ate it pretty quickly after slicing but it stayed pretty tender and moist. It looks rare but that is more due to the excess blood from the trauma to the nearby areas.

Yeah, growing up in Kansas, it is a different world and different style of hunt entirely. I definitely felt it. When we got home my knees were swollen for a week.

That was the honest truth. We were not trophy hunting and throughout the whole hunt would have been happy with anything or nothing at all. As I tried to show, the adventure itself was the true prize. Everything else was a bonus. I know there are plenty of people out there with the money and time to hire guides and ride 4-wheelers around private land looking for a real trophy animal. Nothing wrong with that but I do wonder if anyone that hunts like that can have anywhere near the appreciation that I do for the land, the animals and the effort it takes to do it on your own.

It wasn't. Best guess was it was from the night before. And, that was 20 yards from our camp . Luckily we didn't have any encounters. We did spot one the night before I shot my dear. It was actualy down near where my deer was.

It was an amazing feeling. One the second trip up, since I was by myself and my knee already hurt a bit, numerous times I looked back at camp and thought about quitting. Basically I just had to keep setting small goals. Lower on the hill I would pick a tree 30-40 yards away and then rest in the shade. Then these goals began to shrink to 10 yards, then 5. As I mentioned, at the top I was crossing a rock slide and it was all I could do to will my self to take 3 steps at a time. However, reaching that flat ground up top and having my buddies welcoming me was such a great feeling of accomplishment and perserverance.

I grew up hunting muleys back home in MT. You're right about them being a lot more shifty and unpredictable than the whitetails here in the midwest. Then again the terrain (leafy trees, undergrowth, etc.) around here presents, in my opinion, a lot more of a challenge than the mountains and prairies. Looks like you had a great time and you're right...the trophy is the hunt, not the animal. Great job and I hope you get to enjoy many more in the future!
