    The boys tell me it’s hard to get close,no cover,and across those plains the wind is a huge factor.........both shot at about 400 metres

    @A330driver well done! Looks a lot like a Chamois except for the head gear!? Good to see a face against the nom de plume!

    I have seen plenty of them when driving through the back roads in Wyoming, 2-300 metres away. I guess they are much more twitchy when they see someone on foot, especially during hunting season.

    Great animal to hunt by the looks, you would certainly need good long range skills for them.

    I respect your beliefs but don't impose them on me.
