Re: Mule Deer Hunt Next Week

Len, I know Scott and he's a good guy. I can also back up his claims of 180 class mulies. I have seen some in that class myself while scouting this year. Hope you get one of them and take lot's of photos. I live about 20 minutes from Scott's house. He has great country leased up and he is a good hunter as well as guide. I must admit I envy the land you will have access to. Have fun!

    You just have to love those high powered 7mm's nice shooting. Your Dakota was a case type I considered years ago. I've got a 5.5x22 power NightForce on my 7mm. What kind of scope were you using?

    I really only shoot 175 grain spbt's and the gun came with a slower 11:1 twist.

    180 is quite the score

    Cowboy, Nighthunter, Taos, Big Sky, budlight: Thanks for the good wishes.

    Dave, thanks to you too...for offering to lug my steel!

    budlight, my scope is exactly the same as yours.

    Taos, I head back out west on Thanksgiving day...that time to Wyoming near Sundance.

    Hey Len-- got a buddy of mine that's shooting a 6.5-284 XP-100 with a big 17" Shilen on it. He was running <3" @ 600 yds. recently with 140 A-Max. We went to the ITRC this yr. in Gillette, WY, and i watched him run 8 in a row @ 585 on 8" steel circles, then 2 more @ 685. All this with a screwed up (zero) 3-12X Burris LER.

    He comes out here around Durango every year for a cow elk hunt, but then it's an XP-100 7.82 Patriot.

    Good luck on you hunt.
