Finally Shadow Trophies Become Keepers

There are some 4 ridges like the one in the background photo that I have spent a lot of time on trying to catch these two shadows. Since the first of the year I have seen them numerous times before daylight and after sunset and always in the dark timber. All I could see was shadows moving in the timber. I have been on each of the 4 ridges many, many times trying to catch them in the light. They don't get this big making themselves available.

Today, all the time and effort finally paid off. Here are some big boys. These are free ranging on public land.

Thanks bmullen, I was wondering how long it was going to take to finally get a chance to press the shutter.
