Mule deer far and near...

Well the season is over and had some up's and down's but overall it was up. The furthest shot was at a mule deer doe at 425 yards. One shot and she took a dirt nap. I didn't use turrets just lot's of practice before the hunt gave me a pretty good idea where that bullet was going to go. Sorry no photos, but I rarely photograph does as we get a whole pile of doe tags here and one doe pretty much looks like another. The buck surprisingly was much closer, as in, about 30 yards or less. Again no turrets. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

One 165gr. Hornady Interbond through the heart and he was singing with the angels. Not my biggest, but not a bad buck. He was especially good considering the season was running out fast and it was pretty much crunch time. Hope you all had a good season.

    Troy,
    That is a fine image, well done. Nice buck too. No young-uns in the picture!!! Your kidlet will be upset if you went out and got that buck without her along!

    Ian,
    You got that right I've been in the doghouse ever since I got home. She made me promise to take her next year. I missed having my son along on that hunt as well. I have a year to repent and make plans to take the kids next fall.

    Like your buck. Mulies are sort of like blonds, always catch my eye. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
