Overall Impression: Glad I booked with Mark and Deanna

I booked a 3 day antelope hunt which started on 10/14/01. The first morning, after checking the sights on my rifle, we drove on some of the country roads along land that Mark leased for the antelope hunting, as well as some of the 4,000 acres he owns. In the course of the first 2 hours, we had stopped and glassed 4 different herds and after discussing what we had seen, we decided to go back to the second herd we had seen which contained 2 shooter bucks. We relocated the herd and got out ahead of them over a hill and parked. We walked a few hundred yards along the side of the hill and set up for the approaching herd. They came along the side hill around 200 yds off when they spotted us. A buck with thick bases was trailing the herd and he stopped broadside. He went down at my shot which was aided by the use of shooting sticks and we walked off the shot at 285 yds. The buck green scored at 77-3/8" with 6-1/2" bases which carried up almost 8" to the 4-3/4" prongs. It was 10:30am on the first day and my antelope hunt was over and I was extremely pleased with the buck I had taken. Since I was the only hunter in camp that week, Mark took me around his ranch in pursuit of coyotes and we made a short trip up to the Missouri River Basin 20 miles to the north and observed 9 Big Horn Sheep Ewes, and over 100 elk, including several nice bulls. Deanna served up some great meals and I had a memorable time getting to know Mark and Deanna, as well as their two sons. I would defintely recommend Armells for antelope, elk and mule deer and hopt to visit them again in the future for either mule deer or elk.
