After that, we headed home to take a nap , when Jayson called us and said he found a mule deer buck for me. So we hopped in the truck and hauled rear. We got to him and saw the 3x4 standing on a rock ledge, at 519 yards in a 20 mph wind coming from 3 o'clock...... Soooo, i got set up with my 284 win
Bet that's not what they had in mind when they wrote up those youth hunting regs! Absolutely awesome stories and pictures. So cool to see you guys shooting long and dropping game at those ranges. Glad to see that 284 doing its job!

Nice work Riley!

Re: Had An Awesome Day

Thanks Brandon! I measured my distance to the lands before i loaded up my last "run" of ammo, and i had .010" of throat erosion! So i moved the seating depth back to where it should be and fired a .235" 3 shot group at 100 yards two days before the season opened. That made me feel confidant!

Nice buck Riley,and good shooting, congrats. Like BNG I can't draw a goat tag. Think I will head to Co. for second rifle season, and let the 300 eat.
