After all this long range stuff....

I ended up shooting this fellow at about 15 yds:



But if he had been farther out, I would have been ready!

Oh well, sneaking up to a buck like this in the brush is very satisfying as well. [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] Yup, a 240 MK can kill them at short range....

Overall, it was probably the best year for us:





Bigger bucks have been taken, but never have they averaged so big.

Anyway, I got him quickly and that left some time to get my LR fix whacking the gong....

It's all good.

    Damn, nice bucks. Where do you hunt?? All four of those bucks are bigger then the biggest buck I ever took. So job well done. Forget about the range, it's results that matter.

    Thanks, Roadrunner. Those were taken on our ranch in South Central Montana, near Absarokee.
