Re: Colorado Mule Deer Down

liltank,
I used the 150 gr BT. With my handload, it matches the ballistic plex reticle in my scope to a "t" and is a good suprisingly tough bullet.

long450,
I camped along the Delta-Nucla road. I didn't see any snow anywhere, the daytime temps were in the 60's. It was colder back home in Missouri! I had plenty of warm clothes and tire chains, which turned out to be dead weight but other years they definitely haven't!

    Sambo3006,
    Thanks for the story and nice buck my dream is a long shot like some of the guys have taken on this site (but) I'll take a close shot and be just as proud anyday. What part of colorado did you hunt the reason I ask is because my grandfather told my dad that he wants us to take him out their next year he is 70 years old and we would love to see him get a shot on any legal size buck . We have four wheelers to eas up on his walking .

    Silvertip,
    Put up another post, man. Your post count is on an evil number!
    I have been hunting with friends for about the last ten years but it just worked out that none of them were going the same time as me this year. What is your primary LH LRH rifle?
