    I don't think it much of a story... The last pronghorn I harvested was when I was 17 & I am now 48 going on 49. I guess the common denominator is that I have shot them w/ my Dad's pre 64 Winny 06 feather weight. I will give a shout out to Colorado Cowboy for PM about the unit ... It took...

    Wilderness Archery Elk

    Correct !! People get all wound up to go " remote" and realize it is a lot of work especially if ya knock 1 down... They can't or will not embrace the suck that comes with a little remote hunting.. As I get older 49 this year I am not embracing the suck as much either. :unsure:
