Janice Sexton from Laramie writes: I asked Dad to send this in; looks like he’s left it to me. At 79 and with 3 cracked ribs, Bob Sexton made the most of his long awaited Big Horn sheep permit. Bob, a retired Game & Fish Specialist from Laramie, last hunted Big Horn sheep the year he retired nearly 25 years ago. This year he hunted with Outfitter Jake Clark, good friend Roy Kern and a string of mules; the rib incident happened on the trip in. After the injured ribs situation my Mom said “I guess you won’t be putting in for Big Horn Sheep anymore” to which Dad replied “Oh, I’ll put in again, I’m just going to sell my saddle”

Matt and Chelsie pictures Then, I finally got out on the last day of deer season (Halloween buck!!) to harvest this super heavy 5 by 6 with no time to spare. It was an incredible year and I am very thankful to have had such a great time with my girlfriend and Dad. The trophies are just icing on the cake.

These photos were forwarded to me from Brent along with this message:

Here are a few photos of a tremendous Wyoming buck killed about a week ago north of Douglas, WY in hunt area 26. I took a few rough but relatively accurate measurements of the right horn and the buck grosses around 94 B&C. The right horn had a length of only 14.25" but nearly 8" bases, 9.25" second quarter mass, 6.5" prong, 6.25" 3rd quarter mass and 3+" forth quarter mass. (Notice in one photo that the blue interstate game tag doesn't even come close to reaching around the horn...). I believe our WY state record nets 91 6/8, so this buck will be somewhat close after deductions. Have you ever seen such a massive, high-scoring 14" buck??? This was shot by an unguided hunter from California who simply paid the landowner a trespass fee. Two years ago a resident arrowed a new state archery record from the same area that netted 86+ as well.

Jim Verplanke writes: My wife and I had a good year. We got the moose in area 6. We were hunting a large one but I got excited when I jumped this one and it was all over in a moment. Oh well it only took 18 years to draw a moose tag. We packed it out on our backs and that was a race as the weather was warm. Deer and Antelope Hunting was fair but a cold front came in just prior to the season opening and they all moved down the mountain on to the private properties. Elk Hunting was tough. Hunted 12 days without seeing an elk.

Mark Bundy writes: My mule deer I shot October 30th. Good year for deer.
