    One Kiwi and one Aussie arrived on Wednesday. Been busy taking them out hunting...

    We're off to Wyoming this weekend for speed goats...results pending.

    Matt, bring em. They 'll be good to have!

    Everyone have a great weekend!

    Hey Will
    Send Matt back in shape so that he can help out our team for the Whitetail Contest. I got a good one on TC today bud, I'll save him for you when you get up here. That's if my partner doesn't shoot him, :tu:7x5 non typical that'll go 180+ plus . Best of luck to your whole Clan Will , God Bless.

    Well, it'll be some additional game backstraps for the barbie...

    Grant Bowd (from Australia) had a cracker shot at a speed goat. He wasted no time finding the buck's sweet spot.

    I had Murphy's law working against me on my hunt...I'd go here and the antelope would be over there. I'd go over there and the antelope would be over here.....they got the best of me. It was awesome helping Grant and Scottie with their hunts. Both are extremely happy.

    They're off to start hunting mule deer this morning (during the day until Thursday). On Friday, we're loading gear and heading to the elk camp. The plan is to hunt mornings and evenings Sat and Sun. During the middle of the day we'll set up camp. Everything should be ready for everyone's arrival.

    I have some repairs to make on my tent trailer (was going to sleep a few of you in it). The winds were so severe in Wyoming...it flipped over while we were hunting goats. That's never happened before. From this point forward, I'm staking it whenever it's up and in use.

    Never got a call from Rex, but I think he's here.....

    Rockstar, Bud, you are my hero!

    Rex had some injector issues on the truck in KS but got squared away and should be in country Will. Last I talked to him was Sat. and he was in CO.

    Congrats on the antelope guys!!

    We're packing gear tomorrow. Just after work, Scott, Grant, and I are heading towards the camp site. It all goes up on Saturday. Rex is there...sadly, he has seen a thing yet. Not sure how hard and where he's been hunting. I'm picking up Matt Saturday afternoon (Matt get prepared to meet Rex).

    Grant missed a shot on a muley tonight.

    So close now...

    Tony, call whenever.

    :cry: The anticipation of what I'm missing just makes me sick!!!! :throw:

    I hope you guys all have a SAFE and GREAT hunt out there and memories that last a lifetime. Next year, not sure where I'll be, but I'll be in those mountains somewhere out west. My points may put me in a pretty good draw unit, or I may end up in central Colorado in an OTC..... :confused:
