Well, we are finally back after a good trip. The weather was a bit of a challenge with rain\snow\mud. We would have missed a couple days of hunting if I had not had my tire chains along.
My Dad made his best shot to date with a 495 yard shot on a nice antelope. You can see a tiny flat spot on the butte behind him, that was the firing point. He made the shot with his Savage 6.5\284 F class.
I shot one of my best antelope the same day, a 14 1/2" buck at 380 yards with my new APS 300WM. Man that thing shoots! After dialing the drop the hit was within 1/2" of POA. The buck drop straight down with his legs folded directly beneath him.
The highlight of the trip was the mulie my friend Shane Bruce took. Shane's family owns the ranch we hunt. The monster was 28 1/2" wide with 14 scoreable points. The biologist aged the deer at "more than 14 years old."
Note the 5" drop tine!
It was a great trip as usual, can't wait for next year!
