    After selling everything my wife owns and letting the lesser of the hunting dogs starve, I bought a modest house in far NW Montana for my retirement...should I now live so long...

    I was up there visiting my 1 acre and small house thereon, right in the middle of town, just a few weeks ago. I woke up to find a nice FAT doe eating the last of the flower garden next to our downstairs bedroom window.

    What I saw was delicious back strap dipped in egg and dredged through 1/2 cracker crumbs and 1/2 Parmesian cheese, sizzling in olive oil, getting a nice quick golden color...just the perfect partner to a steaming plate of pasta and a nice glass of pinot noir... :D :wink: :wink:

    What my wife saw was a cutsie wootsie widdow dearzie wierzie in her dazzwazies...how sweet... :roll:

    Same exact deer............. :? :roll:

    It's funny how people precieve things,I have no problem taking a deer.My home to be is Helena luv2,we will have to get together when I get back there.If I ever get drawn for a bull in the elkhorns,I know just where to go.After the rut the big bulls will often hang together for rifle season,and I saw 9 bulls in one herd.Several were small but even though I didn't have a tag I raised my rifle,put the cross hairs on a 7X6's chest and said pow.I lowered my rifle and marked the spot on the bottom of my boots,yea I know where they are.Drop-Shot

    I think my wife is coming around to the backstrap version of your story.

    We went for a walk through the woods last weekend. We had 6 deer (4 does and 2 yearlings/fawns wo/spots) come within 20 yards of us. When we got back, she said, "That kinda makes me want to get a license and try for one myself." :D

    Guess I'm lucky that my wife doesn't care where the meat comes from, as long as it tastes good. :D

    Hey Drop Shot, when are you moving to Helena? I hunted several years in the Elkhorns.

    My son and I are heading up to Great Falls this weekend to go hunting antelope and deer with a buddy of mine.

    Howdy winchester,our plans are to go back in may,sooner if the passes clear,but I doubt they will.I've had such extensive back surgery that I doubt that I will walk the elkhorns next year.I had an anterior and posterior fusion.The doctors say it will be at least 2 years to heal well.This dec 22 will be 1 year.I saw with my own eyes an old elk in an area not too far from a road(dirt logging trail) a 7X8 that will easily go 1000 lbs.When I saw him about 60 yards away,I knew I could not shoot him cause I didn't get a draw for that area,I was hunting some huge muleys,I brought my rifle up and put the crosshairs on him just to see him through the scope,I lowered my gun and just watched the most beautifull creature and majestic,he walked as if he owned the place and I bet he did.I met a game warden and he asked to see my license and I told him about that bull,he's a world record he said but we are letting him mate with as many cows as possible to get that size for the future,I promised to only shoot him with a camera.How can an animal with 5 feet of horns run through brush and trees and not get tangled?He was awesome,but I have seen several in another area that would be great wall hangers,but you have to walk about 1 day to it,I'm not sure when I'll get well enough to get back there.Drop-Shot
