Thanks John Well the pics are of a typical days kill. The war wagon is what they haul the shooters around in. They drop off walkers then go set up the block. On the last day the guys started shooting alittle better and I think we shot 23 in one walk. We usually start hunting around noon and are done in less than 4 hours including a lunch break. The inside pics are of the clubhouse where we have lunch on the nasty days. All the whitetail in the pics were taken off the ranch. Many of the mounts have the past few years sheds to look at which is kinda cool. Heath I didn't see any yotes this trip but have in the past, also red fox which are hated in this neck of the woods. We always see whitetail and antelope plus many of the shelter belts hold turkeys. I also went out to the VHA headquarters and visited with the GM for awhile, I took some pics of that also that I'll try to post. She (the GM) said that at the big shoot the previous week somebody set a new 600 yd. record of 1.1"something 5 rd. group. I did get some good contact names for P.D. shooting on the Rosebud and plan on pursuing that. The weather was good and we fished the river for walleye, all little though. They were having the FLW finals on Lake Oahe so we tried to avoid the crowds on the lake. We saw some huge landlocked King Salmon come out of the lake, 14-18#. The guide said they've gotten them over 24 but not in recent years. The area around Pierre (pronounced pier) is a sportsman's paradise. The Missouri River holds Muleys, the farm country whitetail, the pheasant, duck, and goose hunting is world class and the country is beautiful. The winters are tough for a thin skinned Cally boy though, when it's zero and the wind blows 35mph it'll hurt ya. I've gotta a ton more pics but hate to bother SJ. Tech No Dale
