Tom Steele from Gillette writes: I shot this 6x6 bull in Area 36 public lands, Big Horns 10-15-06. Buffalo,Wy.

Todd Puroll from Bellaire, Michigan with his elk taken in October in the Atlantic City area. His first elk!

The 2006 hunting season was pretty good to the Verplancke family. We had no luck at drawing limited quota tags this year as usual so the deer and elk were general tags and the antelope was a left over 102 tag. All these critters were taken on public land showing, that with hard work, a genuine respect for the land and a little luck, there is still quality hunting to be done on public land. My wife Jodi and son Tanner harvested the whitetail Oct. 30th. Jim took the Muley opening morning Oct.15th and the elk Oct. 28th in the middle of the day. The whole family got in on the antelope hunt with old painless (30-06) sealing the deal.

Matt Buchholz shot this 5X5 bull about 250 yds away with his .270 in Grand Teton National Park. It was his first elk and he says wouldn't have got it without help from his friend, Dan Hengel.

Thanks especially to the landowners who helped him out! Submitted by Tom Denniston.

Since Jeff took up elk hunting he hasn’t gone a year without getting an elk. His remarkable record is a result of hard work, perseverance, and a bit of luck. Photos submitted by Jeff's brother Pete from Pinedale.

Eric Perez and Dad with Dad's bull from this season. These two bulls were taken in the exact same spot but Eric shot his on the18th of Nov. and Dad got his the 8th of Dec.

Jeff Perry from Lander writes: The story behind this 6x6 is somewhat unusual in that I was on my first ever Elk hunt, with my son Bradley and a friend of ours. We were hunting above Dubois, at the Wolf Creek Trailhead. It was Sept. 25th, the first day of the hunt. After 9 or 10 hours of trying to trail one or two elk, it was around 5:30pm and we knew we needed to try to be out before dark, so we decided to bugle one last time. When we did there was an answer that could not have been more than a couple hundred yards away. He stepped into the clearing and I fired from 35 yards away. We trailed him about 250 yards and the rest of the story is in the picture. It just does not get any better than that.

Jason Reaves (17) of Casper with a nice 6x6 Bull elk shot on December 2. He was using a 7mm with 160gr Nosler Partitions at 275 yards. A long walk up the mountain in 2 degree weather is proof the hard work pays off.

Eric Perez age 19 from Gillette, WY. writes: These pictures are from this 2006 hunting season. I started out the season hunting Spring Turkeys in the Black Hills around Sundance, then it was antelope hunting with my Hoyt bow in area 61. Then I had an elk tag for area 116 in the Black Hills and I had been looking for both Elk and deer since September with my bow, but it wasn't until the 18th of November that I harvested both my Elk and deer in the same day. I shot my whitetail that morning around 8 a.m. and shot my elk which by the way is a freak, it has 7pts on one side and a club on the other, around 2 that afternoon so it was a pretty good day of hunting shot both with a 30-06.

Andy Mikesell from Rawlins writes: Here is my 2006 season. All of my animals were killed south of Rawlins on public land , the deer and elk were general tags, antelope was area 53. The deer was the funnest of the three being able to have my boys Tristin and Trevor with me, they reminded me why I hunt. I was able to finish it off with a great 7x6 bull with lots of mass, my brother Darren was also able to take a small bull that was with mine.

Dan Hauck from Riverton writes: Here are some pictures of a bull I harvested this November in a Public Walk In Management unit near Cody.He was a main frame 6x6 but had little cheater 7th points on each side. I had my good luck charms with me, my 6 and 9 year old daughters.

Nick Lewis of Riverton harvested this 3 X 3 mule deer measuring 16 inches wide by 18 inches tall on 10-21-06. This was his first big game animal taken. He shot it at 310 yards using a Remington 300 win mag. Congratulations from your brother Travis Lewis, who was probably more excited at the time than Nick was. Nice Job!

Marcia Murdock enjoyed success this past season. Left and middle is her 2006 ram. Marcia writes that she had a great year with three animals with 3 shots from her 7 mm mag. The longest was the sheep at less than 100 yards. The whitetail was 45 yards while still-hunting in crunchy snow. The most satisfying part - she was standing in the tracks of a couple ATVs that had been illegally operated a long ways off-road. Those guys never saw that buck but she got him fair and square - fair chase.

Chuck Dobkin's son Logan with dad’s kill on 9/15/06, 9 yard shot Medicine Bow Forest.

Garth Simkins from Cheyenne, Wyoming writes: This is by far my luckiest and busiest hunting season to date. I was fortunate enough to draw a Wyoming Moose and a Big Horn sheep tag in the same year. What an animal "Scores" has never meant much to me, but they are all trophies to me. I shot the moose with my bow on Sept 2nd in the southern part of Wyoming. I was able to sneak up on him to within 15 yards as he fought with another bull. The antelope is 15 inches and was taken in central Wyoming. The mule deer was also taken in central Wyoming.

My name is Eric McDonald from Casper Wy. On the last day of September, I was out with my uncle and we got on a really huge antelope.

We green scored him at 88-1/8 and nets 87-4/8.

Mike Martinez writes: Here is my antelope which was taken on 8/18/06 with my bow it score 85 6/8 and my boy Adrein's antelope that scores 75 3/8 it was taken on 9/24/06. Both south of Rawlins.

Greg Larsen writes: This was Lori Larsen's buck for 06, he scores very near book. She made a great shot at 220 yards. Stalked the buck for 2 days before we could get a good shot on him.

NOTE: This photo has been circulating the internet lately. The claim is that this elk was killed during a "fair-chase" hunt with a bow in the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness in Idaho. However evidence has been received that this bull was shot on a game farm in Quebec, Canada. Here are some interesting photos taken of the same animal. It's as big as they get, but it doesn't appear the fair-chase claim is valid.

Thanks to Derek from Casper for the info.

Tyler Burt writes....Here is a photo of my 2006 antelope buck. I lived in Rock Springs for 5 ½ years. As I have just relocated to Colorado, this was my last season hunting WY as a resident…for now. Who knows what the future holds! The goat is just shy of 15 inches, and still green grosses around 79 ¼ - not too bad for such a shorty. I took him at 385 yards with my .270.

JIM STOVER From Cheyenne writes.....Spotted this buck at 2:30 p.m. in the afternoon on the 18th of Sept. 06 bedded down. Put a mile stalk around down wind of him to get with 250 yards...He was still bedded. He stayed bedded for another 3 hrs with no possible stalk.....Until he got up around 6:00 p.m. and fed over a point. I immediately ran within 50 yards to where he was bedded and took off my boots due to how dry it was and the wind had calmed to nothing. Stalked around the point and all I could see was antlers! I ranged a bush where he was at; at 14 yards...I immediately drew and took one step to my left and shot him at 17 yards steep quartering away...He didn’t go 80 yards and expired. He was approx. a 8-10 year old deer and weighed about 350 pds on the hoof. His gross score is 180 1/2 and will net out at around 175 and some change. He has 6 1/2 bases and holds the heaviness throughout..
