2012 deer hunt with best friends gun he left me

this is our 2012 northeastern mule deer hunt we do each year. this year we are 1 less as my best friend and long time hunting buddy just passed away . he left me a few of his rifles and shot guns so i took 1 of them with me this trim with some ammo he had load just a few week before. i used a ULTRA LIGHT ARMS model 20 single shot chambered in a wildcat [ 30 rem necked up to 35 ] with the new TTSX
180 gr. sorry no long range shooting this year just a nice easy 190 yrds standing
1 shot in and out and now heading into my freezer.
also filled a whitetail doe tag with it on the same trip with the same results
