We had some wind but it was temporary. It was one of the easiest trips weather wise.

Full ice chests make for a nice drive home.

Salad!

OUTSTANDING coverage, as usual. Thanks for thinking of us. Congrats to the hunters. Kudos to Stovall/Autry family for sharing their little slice...

Made it home.

Words really canít describe the awesomeness we all got to experience this weekend...what an honor to be included on these hunts.

Special thanks to Ben, Zac, and the Autry family for allowing us another year of hunting, campfire, and memories on their ranch.

And a big time congrats to the guys who put lopes on the ground...certainly is just as much fun, if not more, seeing others succeed on this hunt.

I had an absolute blast as usual!

What an event. So honored to be included. Old fireside relationships were renewed and new ones formed. I'll share some pics tomorrow. I took it off to recoup.

According to the order of images in the camera, I believe this is Casey's buck. However, the more I look at it, the more I think it's another lope entirely. Of course, the angle does not help. If this isn't the Casey antelope, then enjoy the image for what it is.

This spot is called the Double Windmill. It has enjoyed a lot of action and photography over the years. In this shot the crew is looking for antelope with Devin on the top of what used to be our favorite gametamer sit.

I had such a great time. There was no hesitation when Ben asked me to go up and hunt with them. I've not hunted with him and the others in many years, so this was a no-brainer.

I took a few pics and will share them here. It's hard to compete with Steven on such things but hopefully there is an appreciation for all styles of work.

Nice job Casey!

Great sharing a fire with you and Devin as well as the regulars. It's always fun to hunt with the pros.

Awesome images. I especially like the tequila shot for Mr. Middleton for the sentimental value. It turned out even better than expected. This was certainly a memorable year not just because of the reunion of old hunting buddies but because of the huge impact of the Middleton Family loss which changed the line-up at the last minute. I'm honored to have had the opportunity to fill Michael's tag in his absence.

One of these days we need to get the charity gang back together. (Michael, Rudy, Larry, Casey, Devin) with a Stovall twist.

I figure I'm done with this antelope killing thing for good now. Maybe I'll shoot one after Sam gets his first one.

Use tripod
Use remote shutter or timer
Wide angle lens (15mm here)
25-30 Sec exposure (see 500 rule)
1600 ISO
F stop wide open
Focus a tad short of infinity
Find Milky Way (southwest sky right now)
Shoot before the moon comes up and out in a place where there's not a lot of junk light.
Beware of airplane and satellites (streaks your image)

Good luck!

I definitely appreciate the sentiment, the photo and most of all the love and friendship. A charity event sounds like a great plan.

Thank you.
Let me know if it's in this area. Long exposures are always more tolerable when you have company!

This hunt was an amazing experience with some of the men I respect more than almost anyone. I don't know if I could ever ask for more.

Even these amazing pictures don't do justice to just how immense the country is. Felt like stepping back into the 1800's. I was in awe the entire time.

I can't thank the Stovall's and Autry's enough for their generosity. The rest of you knuckleheads made it over the top. It was campfire fellowship I'd gone far too long without. Thank you, men!

Only thing additional I could have wished for was your presence, MM. We thought of you and your dad often. Next year!

Y'all boys carried the torch beautifully this year. I'm sitting at the Phoenix airport catching up on the hunt. Well done by all.

Outstanding coverage and over the top pics as usual.

The milky way shots are outstanding!

Devin and Casey were all in from day one and their enthusiasm rubbed off on the rest of the group. Devin put the sneak on an unsuspecting buck and two does the first day of hunting. Distance is always tricky to judge out there and my 15 year old rangefinder didn't help things any. After the first few shots didn't connect, I asked Devin if he had plenty of ammo. He responded "OH YEAH!" as he let another one rattle. We regrouped and were able to get in better range. His response still has me laughing.

The washed out roads and creek crossings turned out to be a blessing in disguise. Piling a Ranger full of a days worth of junk and these friends made for a great time. Thanks everyone for bringing your A game. I hope we can get a repeat next year with Michael in tow.

Steven and Casey, the pictures turned out great. I'm going to share some with my grandparents. They don't get to make it out there much anymore.

Brother...pass along a huge thanks to your family for us. I hope they have a small understanding of the fun so many of us have had getting to follow. Truly one of the best threads of the year.

I still don't know how you guys braved the heat with the bow in the past...it was outstanding that you guys caught good weather!!

I had very high expectations for this, and you dudes smoked past them.

You guys are pros, you can't fake that.
