My wife and I headed over to my brothers in Wenatchee last Wednesday to hunt for the rest of the week. After chasing around and stalking a few bucks on Thursday and Friday that ended up being 2 points (Eastern Wa has a 3 point min), Katie was begining to wonder if we would ever find a legal buck. On Saturday, we had a first time hunter friend with us and were hoping to find some deer. We headed to a new area and started seeing deer right away. I was glassing down in a timbered canyon bottom and found 2 legal bucks hanging out together in a small opening. We had Katie and my buddy get setup to try to get a double. After awhile the two of them got on target and the scopes dialed in. The bucks had enough and moved into the timber. We decided to walk down the ridge and see if the deer had come out on the other side of the canyon. After crawling over deadfalls for about an hour, we were unable locate the bucks. On the way back, I looked down the in the canyon bottom again, and there stood another buck in the same opening. I hit the swaro and came up with 402 yds and got Katie setup for the shot. It was at a pretty steep angle (.9 cosine). The buck was quartering away, so I had her dial up 3.75 MOA and aim for the offside shoulder. The wind had died down and I told her to send it. The 243AI barked and the buck hit the dirt instantly. A couple other hunters had drove up behind us during the shot and couldn't believe she hit the deer, and that it fell where it was standing. We ending up getting him out just in time. A prescribed burn was going on and the winds got it a little out of hand. We had ash hitting us and covered the truck on the pack out. When we got to the truck, the fire was about 300 yds away. Jesse and I wanted to thank Shawn and JR for the classes we took with them this year. Jesse took a buck opening weeked at 730yds with his 338 Edge. The advice, education, and friendships we formed with Shawn and JR were of great value. Thanks guys. This was Katies longest shot on game, now she gets to try again in Montana next month.
