Another Colorado Plains Muley!

Drew a late season buck tag for the unit north of me and bagged a pretty nice mule deer today. Shot was 406 yards with a 10mph wind from about my 4 o clock. He was kinda quartering to me facing to my left. Shot him with my Ruger no.1 in 7mm stw with a 160gr Nosler Accubond. Bullet entered just behind his left shoulder and stopped in the hide in his right hind quarter. Bullet ended up weighing 98.2gr ( 61% weight retained) and dropped him in his tracks.
