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?

    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)
    Tipis
    Looks like you make a nice tipi tent yourself!
