Yum yum good eatin for a long time.
Makes me wish I had applied for Wy tags this year.
This is the first year i have missed going west since 2007.
Have been lucky enough to have shot 2 bulls both good eating and 2 cows of 7 plus yrs according to biologists both so tough you couldn't cut the gravy.

A very nice picture. Talk about having the camera ready. None of them here in Maine.

When I'm in my truck the camera lives on the console, the rest of the time it's in my pocket or on my belt unless I'm turning wrenches or working cows.
Pete, last years was a bit tough, but it will make great burger or jerky.
Please don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining. The bosses son gets me an elk because he loves to hunt and then I pay the meat cutter with deer and elk sheds that I find.

Hi Allan
Tough or not the hunting adventure to me is the thing but the eating is good too.
I process all of my wild critters myself even when west.
I take a small freezer along which makes transportation nice.
Good luck to all of you guys heading west.
I still have a few packages of last years cow in the freezer along with some speed goat and whitetail.
Deer hunting starts for me on Oct 18th with the opener of northern zone of NY muzzle loader season.
Have been near your location at the Little Bighorn battlefield only once, but love to get west.
Spectacular country.

Pete, the far end of the ranch is about 30-40 miles from the Little Big Horn Battlefield. I haven't made it to one of the re-enactments yet, but want to. I get people upset by mentioning that I wish for just once the yellow haired guy (Custer) would win or maybe this year he'll fair better. Some people have no sense of humor!

When I was younger I had an in at the north end of the Paddock ranch on the Montana side. Great place to hunt and beautiful country. That was before they started charging, got a little expensive for me so we went somewhere else.  Nice while it lasted.

I went to the big city shopping yesterday and picked up the elk on the way home and might should have bought myself a bigger freezer too. I filled this freezer and the one in the kitchen also. Actually the one I have is more than I need for the year.
I ran into a real good friend on the way home and sent him and his wife home with enough to last them a couple months. I know a couple people in town that could use a bit of help right now and my ex-girlfriend is still a great friend and an awesome cook, plus she has cable tv, so I have to help her out. ;D.
Now I need to get busy making jerky with better than 50 lbs of what was left from last year.
It's a good day.
