Quote from: gitano;85572Well, here's the beginning, and I'll keep it short for the moment as I just got home yesterday afternoon, and I'm still settling back in. Only HB and I got critters, and after the three we hung at RJ's, HB only got one more doe. The elk simply weren't there. We saw zero live elk, and the only dead ones were ones that had come off of high private property. As RJ mentioned, the weather was hot, and the elk were still in the high country. By the time the weather cooled, we were basically out of hunting time. I shot my doe off of some State Trust land called Rattlesnake Hill. If you have google Earth loaded, the latitude and longitude coordinates are 40*22'29.11"N by 108*04'02.43"W. I'll relate "the rest of the story" a bit later, with pictures. I will say now though that I am very pleased with the performance of the 8mm SLT with the 220 Sierra. As usual, thanks to RJ - "our man in Craig" - for his very generous help. Paul
