Home from our hunt in unit 70. This was by far our best trip for big bucks. The rut was on and we saw a lot of nice bucks on the ranch we were hunting. My partner started off on the first morning tagging a big non typical to start of with. That buck was aged at 8 yrs old. I passed several bucks up before I tagged my best buck ever after seeing him the second day and couldn't get my rifle loaded because I couldn't feel my fingers and was fumbling and juggling my shells in my hand. Spent the rest of that day looking for him. Found him on the 3rd day walking down a creek bed not far from where I'd seen him the day before.Took him with my 270 wsm and 130 gr Nos AB. Quartering away @ 180 yds. All totaled we took 6 bucks for 7 hunters. One fellow also tagged a 6x4 bull elk. On the way out after the hunt was over we saw several more bucks chasing doe's that we hope will survive for another season.

Great job by all of you. Looks like the weather cooperated, also. Where is Unit 70?

Nice looking animals. Wall hangers for sure. Hope they taste as good as they look.

Looks pretty healthy - should be good eating. Glad your passes on the other bucks yielded your tag on the nice one! Congratulations!!

It's in the SW part of the state close to Dove Creek. We had cool mornings in the 20's and warm afternoons high 60's .
