Nice food for your family and great memories made there.

Do have anything to report about the terminal balistics of the projectile used in this hunt?

We both shot ours with my old Rem 788 in .308. My buddy's handloads with Speer Spitzers, 150GR always perform great.

All the creeks up there are fed by springs and despite the drought, were running stronger than usual considering no snow melt.

Thanks for sharing. Awesome pics, Fogie! Those does sure look healthy. The drought hasn't impacted them too much it seems. My son has an Area 22 tag so we can't wait to get out there.

Thank you! You know, in looking at the field dressing pic, I never thought to open a doe up past the sternum. I'm so used to stopping there and then reaching up and slicing the trachea. I can clearly see the trachea in the pic. Much cleaner :)

Is that a gut pile from your doe in the background? Also, in your pic, looks like a solid double-lung shot. Nice!

My Pop taught me to open em' from chin to splitting the pelvis..everybody does it a little different. We left seven piles and rib cages under the tree. I always use that tree and next year all is gone.
