Good write up. Great Buck. Age-wise, I'm chasing you on the downhill side, so thanks for giving me hope. Have you noticed how the mountains get taller the older you get?

I'm excited to give it a go myself, but I have to wait until mid-November here in Nebraska. Hopefully I can post a success story of my own!

Again, great work!
Thanks, and good luck on your upcoming hunt. Let us know how it turns out.

No kidding, we passed a lot of guys hunting on horse back everyday but that one. I would have paid a bunch of $$ for the use of a horse just then. I did prove to myself there was still some juice in the old bones, ouch!

Nice buck! And a cool story to go with it. Congrats on the kill.

Nice !!! Great Buck and my hat off to you on the pack out. I will be 55 in a few weeks, I hope I can still pack em like that in 10 yrs. Great story as well. It looks to me like you have that rifle dialed in and ready to fill a freezer. Way to go.

Re: First Mule Deer and Long range kill

I just want to say great job all the way. Obviously a great job on the shot and catching the hit signs and finding your deer, but also a great job on telling the story to us. I love the in depth detailed hunting stories much better than " here's the pic, shot him at x yards with this gun".

Thanks for sharing
