    Default Delta Bison Hunt, Buffalo down

    I had an amazing time. I finnaly bagged a big game trophy up here in Alaska. Only my second animal I've shot in my life, The first a white tail doe in Montana. I know I am privaliged to draw a great permit. I put the story on my profile, all I can say is what a rush and a very lucky shot. One bullet from a 300 win mag that wasn't adjusted to me. But put her down, a double lung shot at 100 yards. It wasn't easy though. I put my time and effort into it. It was not an easy hunt until the last day. It took 11 days of hiking, snowmaching, and glassing fields. My piece of advice is when you are ready to give up give it another day or two or three. Also talk to as many people you can about the area and where they should be at. They are moving all the time. If any of you get a permit pm me and I love to give you some hints and people to talk to. Plus where you should stay cause they will let you know where they are and if they have seen any recently.

    Oh man I heard it was good eating and I finnaly got to taste it. I plan to harvest one every couple years, save on the beef cost. Of course it will have to be on a ranch, still will cost about the same as this hunt.

    Very nice. Glad you kept at it and sure is super when the plan finally comes together. It probably would not have been half as much fun to get the buffalo on the first day . Just kidding, glad you and your husband had the tenacity to stick with it, and many more.

    Congrats on finally connecting and way to stick with it. It took my dad 4 trips down to Delta this year to connect. We were getting pretty discouraged as well. What a rush it was to finally see the bison.

    Gotta agree with you on the meat, it is hard to top.

    I can't figure out how to get the picture on the main thread. I have it as my profile pic but don't understand how to get it there when I'm posting something.

    Default What a hunt story

    That's a great story, Thanks for posting, and all the pictures are excellent

    There's a thread somewhere (probably on the Outdoors Photography Forum, or ask Brian M about it) that details posting photos. It takes a few attempts to figure out but is fun and worth getting down. However you got these pics on your profile, it is probably just about copy and paste from there to the body of your post here and you'll see it is easier than you might expect.

    Glad you got them to us on your profile tho, really enjoyed the whole story, your son hanging in there, husband thinking you were messing with him when you spotted them,etc.

    Again, Great Story, you are one awesome Mom
