My answer to this is. The only reason is to make the 7 RM look good. There is no other reason.

Well it weren't long range, but it was long on fun. He was not in a place to take a long poke and in fact it's one of the closest shots I've ever had at a mature mule deer. Took him with a standing off hand shot between 50 to 60 yards. Sure was a great time in Colorado this weekend despite the very warm temperatures. I hope the rest of you boys headed that way do as well or better.

Side view with Big Sky Jr. at my side. It just doesn't get any better than this!

Nice going. Long or short, decent buck.

What area you hunting in? If you don't want to say, I understand completely.

Darryl I was hunting just above Golden. Heck, in the evenings I could see Mile High stadium all lit up.
