Flew in Monday,Started hunting on Tues. morning.Glassed up decent bear,and a good caribou bull.My partner and his 9 year old son took the bear a good sow,no more cubs for that one.Another buddy and his 11 year old son and I went to get a closer look at the bull.He spotted another bull with two smaller bulls,they were on the move and farther away than the first bull.I passed on the closer bull,he went and took the bull.I gave chase on the other bull to get a closer look.Got some good looks after about a mile of parrelling and decided to give him a try.
He bedded in a doable spot,and belled off in the hole,played the wind and snuck up to a large rock,seen him through the brush still bedded.Crawled to my left slowly rose up and took him in his bed @ 37 yards,kinda of a stretch for the Kimber 300 wsm.180 gr. Swift Scriacco.It did a phenomal job,through the neck and through the opposite shoulder blade and stopped in the skin.
Will have weights for it and my sheep bullet here soon,they both look great,sheep was @ 355 yds.
Mountain Hardwear Witer Wander pants were awesome,Rain jacket could've used a new coat of DWR,Patigona R-1 pullover did great along with the trusty old Mont Bell Therma wrap coat.Some fine German and Austrian glass always makes things enjoyable.Used my Barneys Pinnacle.Asolo boots,OR gaiters.
Had a great hunt,very demanding physically.Both knees are shot gonna have to get them checked out.
I will try to upload some pics,haven't figured out yet.
