    That’s my son’s business. Big Horn Outfitters in Buffalo, Wyoming. He’s Dubbya on the prostaff here. I grew up in Wyoming and all my family is there so I go back 3-4 times a year. There is a ridiculous amount of game there. I hunt a lot of public land but this year hunted some of his land since I was hunting whitetails. He guides for moose, elk, mule deer, whitetails, antelope and has some amazing prairie dog shooting. He also does turkey hunts in the spring for Merriams.

    Very cool. It certainly looked like they had some nice animals in the pics. I’ve hunted around Buffalo myself and the amount of game in that area is crazy. Id be hunting there every year if I could!

    I went out tonight. First time hunting on the ground. Went back to a public piece I walked around last winter. But did not see any deer.

    I hunted yesterday and had does and a spike come in. Shot a boar hog just before dark and although I made a perfect hit on him, wasn’t too keen on tracking him in the dark. Went in first thing today and the coyotes had surgically opened him up and cleaned up everything. He went 75 yds. I literally flopped the hide over the rib cage and took a picture. I couldn’t have done a cleaner job with a knife. I just cut the hide off the back of the neck and skinned the head on my tailgate. My son has beetles so I’ll let them clean it up.

    Hey fellas, hope everyone is doing well. Its definitely a tough time of year to hunt, but with late season it can often be very rewarding as food becomes a major factor again. I hope everyone has a great Christmas and a happy new year! enjoy the time with people who mean the most.

    Going to my brothers-in-laws this weekend to celebrate Christmas with my outlaws. Best part he is about 3 minutes from a awesome archery shop. Going to be hard not to come back with something for myself for Christmas. It’s called drop tine archery. Same as foodplot said merry Christmas to you and yours.

    Mornin' guys!!
    I just looked at the scorecard again and holy cow there is some space btw 1st and second. It's around 450 pts ish. I know I'm not going to kill enough deer to close that gap in the next 2 weeks. :lol:

    Have fun and enjoy Christmas with your families!!!

    I'll be heading home to Michigan for the holidays so likely won't be on much. To those on the team still after it, good luck! And to everyone, Happy Holidays to you and yours!
