So my 70 year old mom drew Delta ~ on her first ever try. We hunted hard, total of four trips with 16 days. Mom broke her arm in mid-winter which caused a lot of down time. Got close to the herd on Diana's property in October, missed them by a couple hours on Steele property in January. No sign whatsoever in February. Was back at it for final trip over the weekend. Found them several times around Donnelly Dome. Put on a few stalks but was never close enough to positively ID a bull and have a clean shot. The last day of the hunt we spot them in a distance. I found the road that led to them and belly crawled to 40 yards, that's where I snapped this picture. A herd of at least 30. Crawled back out and got the tag holder ready to go. Once last check of the Greely map to make sure we are legal. Oh boy, I think they are in a closed area mom. Got on the phone with range control and described where we were at. Sure enough that area is closed. That's hunting I guess. 16 hard days, thousands of miles on the truck and once we find them in a position where its duck soup, we cant access them. She was quite disapointed, but overall had a great time. Despite not punching a dream tag, I got to hunt with both my parents and my son. Good times. Tougher tag than I think most people realize. I've never hunted an animal that was so hard to determine bull vs. cow. That and there is almost no opportunity to get a vantage point where you could spot/stalk ~ sans Donnelly dome.
