What about the temperatures, appeared to be nice camping weather.

I liked them and they opened up a huge hole. I'll probably use them on my coues hunt this January. My only complaint was that the pointed tip on almost all the broadheads had some burrs on the edges that I had to file down and sharpen. I had 3 packs, 2 were bought at Walmart when they put them on clearance, I'm not real sure where I bought the 3rd pack, but it wasn't Walmart. I usually deer hunt locally with a recurve so I'll be switching back to low profile cut on contact broadheads for the next couple months.

Congrats. Great write up. My wife and I are currently in the planning phase of Wyoming antelope, hopefully next year.

That flyrod has doomed many western trips. It seems like everytime I take it, I return home with an empty cooler; even if the flyrod never left the vehicle. After this trip, I'm starting to think it might not be the fishing pole. I'll shoot you a PM with a link to the trip report of the fishing side of the trip.
