Wyoming Whitetail

Posted my Antelope the other day. Got this whitetail a few days later. Shot this guy from the top of the hill in the background at 475 yards. Sat there glassing for about 4 hours when I saw him sneaking through a wooded draw. G7 Rangefinder did a good job takig care of the angle, and picking through the trees with the near/far capability which came in useful for all three animals taken that week, the other being a whitetail doe at 690 yards. Hit the deer in the picture angling away in back of the ribs, exiting on the far front quarter, dead instantly. All game taken with my 6.5x284 Cooper 520, 140 Berger Hunting VLS's.

    You're having a great season! By the way, I'll be loading some 140 VLDs and Retumbo tonight with a 215M primer to test at the range on Friday.
