2012 General deer

Well i spent Saturday with my dad hiking in the mountains looking for deer. Came up a little short, didnt see many deer but saw some Big Horn Sheep, wolf and lion tracks. Nothing worth pulling the trigger on. Today i didnt even go out for the morning hunt then about 3:00 pm i decided i might as well run out and see if i could find something. I found a little piece of public ground i thought looked interesting so i hiked up there and soon found out i was not the only person who thought it looked interesting. After about 20 minutes i decided it wasnt worth it. I was headed back to the truck and i bumped into this guy trying to sneak away. He took off running at less than 100 yards so i chambered a 160TSX and sent one his way off hand from my 7mm. He dropped in his tracks. He scores 160" on the dot. Not a giant by any means but my best muley to date.

    Nice buck man! Look at those brow tines. Congrats. I hope I am blessed like you when I get to CO! How far are you willing to shoot a deer with that TSX? Is your "7" a Rem Mag?

    Nothing at all wrong with a 160 buck!! Especially on public land. Definately an above average deer in most areas I hunt.

    Good job Mike! Nice buck, Tall and Symetrical. Congratulations.
