12 Year Old's First Wyoming Trip

I just got back from hunting in northeast Wyoming with Shane Bruce (SBruce). It has been an annual trip for me for many years but this year my son made his first trip. He did rather well.................

He shot the rare full velvet buck at 306 yards with his 243 Savage. The antelope shot was 377 yards with a 260 Remington that I built. Jared did a great job, I am very proud of him. Thanks to Shane for all his help.

very cool

Being competent with a given rifle is far more important than impressive ballistics and poor shootability. High velocity misses never put a steak in the freezer.

Fine looking young man, with some nice animals. Hope that smile last a long time. Hope his dad has one to match.

That's a good looking mule deer and antelope! Nice low behind the shoulder shot on that antelope! Bet it got a good deal of vitals on it. What did the 260 do to the inside of the goat? What bullets did he use?
