My "hunting room" is not as impressive as a lot of folks here....or NONYA's house....but I like it. It's my little sanctuary.

LOL....Thanks Killer. Naw, I haven't been holding out. I THINK that I've shown pics of all of them at one time or another over the last 6+ years that I've been a member here.

First, all but two of the whitetail I've taken are from Idaho. I took the other two here in WA.

The big Muley, and my largest to date, I took the season before I joined this site. I took him in the Joseph Creek area here in WA, a rock's throw from the Oregon boarder. I had hiked into a real nasty area overlookin' the Grande Ronde when I spotted him moving down a slide on the opposite canyon wall. I watched him until he bedded below a small rock outcropping and made about a 2 hour stalk to within shooting range.
Unfortunately I did not have a rangefinder with me and misjudged the distance from my side to his and made a bad shot, hitting him much higher than I wanted to. He jumped from his bed and was off and around the next ridge before I could get another round into him. I knew I hit him though so I immediately hiked back to my truck and drove the two hours back home to get help tracking him down. We tried all the first night to find him (That was the scariest night of my life too! Hiking those canyons and draws in the dark was NOT fun at all). We finally found him the next morning about 1/4 mile from where I had hit him deep in an old wash. I'm still trying to top that one! I got skunked this year but there's always next year!

The other big Muley on the wood plaque is an Oregon buck, taken by my Grandfather YEARS ago. I don't know the story on him but the bases are so big I cannot get my hands all the way around them. (With that being said, I'm not the biggest guy in the world and my hands aren't exactly huge)

Nice Nonya; is it safe to assume that you are a single fellar? Not many wives would allow such a "display."

A drunk feller would have a good chance of getting IMPALED in NONYA's house. So remember, Freinds don't let friends drink with NONYA! Kidding aside, I think that thousands of us taxidermy deprived married guys are green with envy, congrats NONYA.----shooter

I think nonya went down to the north american wildlife museum and got photo happy cause that is not a house it's a shrine. :thumb Very cool Nonya.
