Photo of Gordon Burton's 2004 Spring blonde bear

Outfitters don't always get as many chances to hunt as they would like. This year Gordon was happy to take this beautiful blonde bear on the last day of the spring season with a 140 grain Barnes X bullet from his .280 Remington.

Photo of Susan Fallon with her heavy horned 2004 Alberta Pronghorn Antelope

TIM and SUSAN FALLON of Barksville, TX, joined us in October. We connected at the Safari Club International Convention a couple years ago and made plans to hunt together.

It's twice the fun when we guide a husband and wife and this hunt was no exception!

We started out on the prairies getting an antelope for Tim in the first few days. The girls hunted long and hard before Susan connected on this heavy horned buck. Photo of Tim Fallon's 2004 Alberta Pronghorn Antelope Photo of Tim Fallon's 2004 Shiras Moose

We finished up their hunt with a trip to the mountains and a Alberta Shiras moose for Tim. Photo of buster and birds

We also found time for a little wingshooting over "Buster", the German Shorthair Pointer pup we brought home with us from the NE Michigan SCI fundraiser last April.

This year Gordon was exceptionally lucky, in addition to the nice bear taken in the spring, he also took this magnificent non-typical muley. With 10 points per side this is truly a dream buck for him. As always, he was using his .280 Remington with a 140 grain Barnes X bullet.
