I have been seeing a lot of bucks but they have all been too far away. Opening day saw fifteen bucks most were 2 points there were a couple 3 points worth shooting if they were closer. Other than that it has been one here and there.
this years muzzy hunt was a blast one of the best hunts i have been on. i too was in elk heaven all week long saw at least 20 different bulls up close and personal would have taken all but 2 if i had the chance. deer wise i was able to put a stalk on 2 different 4 points got to 60 yards on both when the deer look behind them and took off. each time another hunter had skylined on the ridge the deer were on. but no worries i still have the rifle hunt to look forward to. not to mention i will be dreaming of big ole elk for quite awhile now.
I also shot my first muzzy buck this year. I actually passed on him the day before, but couldn't hold out the next day as we were headed back to break down camp. Shot him at 40 yards through both lungs with a 50 cal. 245gr. AeroTip, he didn't go far!
