    I got close to a bedded 5 point bull one year while deer hunting. Maybe 20 feet above him. I backed out of there and left him in his bed not wanting to ruin my deer hunt. Since then I've quit buying a elk tag...LOL!

    I came over a rise in the sage brush early one morning and ran into this buck at 30 feet. He swapped ends and I shot him in the back of his head. The bullet came out just below his left eye. Luckily, it did not split the skull.

    Every hunting season you miss is one you can not make up.

    I used to have an apple orchard across the road from my place and it was always full of deer. I used to get depredation permits and always shot dry does. I always used my 25-06 and always shot them in the head. I have shot several at 20 to 25 feet. Not too difficult to do.

    One year I let my buddy shoot one and it turned out to be a disaster. He shot it behind the shoulders at 25 yards. The deer jumped the fence and ran a couple of hundred yards, dying in the neighbors flower bed. Neighbors wife was a little upset. Had to give them the hind quarters and backstraps to calm her down...LOL!

I decided to hunt a familiar ridge back toward the truck, didn't make it but 1/4 mile and saw an elk moving in the lodgepoles...walked right past me at maybe 15 yards, a small 5 point. I just kept moving down the ridge and peeked just over a slight roll in the landscape. Finally found a small herd of cows and shot the closest one, 25 yards below me with 7 RM and 160 Partition...my 50th elk. I shot form the 2 large aspens behind me, just over my right shoulder. I rested on the side of the larger aspen.



    A number of years ago, I rigged up my 7 RM to shoot long range. Bedded, floated, new stock, started shooting 160 AB's, turret, new trigger, yada yada...and spent a crap load of time at the range. Was sneaking along, just below the top of a ridge looking below me on a North facing slope and this guy was feeding at 25 yards. Glad I spent all that time at the range and getting rigged up for longer shots, paid off big at 25 yards:

    I'm crowning BuzzH the king of this thread! Awesome photos!

    Was still hunting whitetail in some creek bottom with a good wind in my face. This guy never even knew I was there. 25 yards with 7mag 120 gr hand load. Dropped in his tracks

    I've killed a few pigs within 10 feet. I just happened to be in between their points A and B.
