2011 Mule Deer

Here's the buck I took this weekend in Washington State. My buddy and I hunted from opening day of "High Buck" and 3 days in I took this buck. We saw one bigger but couldn't get a shot at him. Passed a few bucks as well. I saw three much larger bucks in pre-season scouting.

Shot was 482 yards downhill .91 cos.





It was a heck of a pack out. We still have to go back in to get a buck for my buddy and pack out some gear we left up there. Special thanks to Benchmark Barrels!

That is a nice one! Good job.

What are you shooting?

What tent is that?

Re: 2011 Mule Deer

Thanks guys,

The rifle is a trued Rem 700 in an AICS,
Benchmark barrel (.277" 1:9 twist) 28", chambered in 270 win
Rem Varmint contour, fluted, mini "muscle" brake
Tuned factory trigger etc.

I also use this rifle for matches... I shoot the 165gr Matrix bullets at 2890 fps.

The tent is a Kifaru Tipi tent (it belongs to my buddy)

Looks like you make a nice tipi tent yourself!
