Re: Mulie @ 460

Many Congrats! Good tall tines and width too. Wonderful representative Muley!

After reading the story, I find myself LMAO.......not at you, but with you I hope. This past season we found ourselves holding for the changes in wind (after we'd dialed in the past condition) the wrong way a time or two! Funny what happens when "the fever" get ahold of ya huh? LoL!!

Again, Congratulations on a dandy mule deer, and thanks for posting the video.

You know this dial the scope thing and stick out your tongue out too check the wind is pretty new to me. On top of that put a layer of excitement and you have a perfect mixture for mistakes. Big bucks have always got me going even though I thought this buck was around 26 it was really fun and when I got to him the smile just got bigger.

Have to develop a process from the moment the range finder comes out until one shoots and practice that. The slowest thing I noticed is the range finder. Gonna have a holster made that I can put on the backpack strap or a belt so its easy to get to.

Re: Mulie @ 460

I'm right there on lessons learned about trying to remember things in the heat of the moment. A couple years ago I shot a big bull @ 642 using a ballistic plex reticle. I had done good and the first shot was a good hit but he was still on his feet going away. He ended up stopping broadside and I emptied my gun with him just standing there with his head down but couldn't touch him. To my relief he laid down and expired and only then did I even think about ranging him again. He was now at 800 yds. Whew - lesson learned I hope.

Hey HUAINAMACHERO
The horse in the video is mainly my pack horse. Hes very good at what he does and the most personable horse I have as you could see. No matter where Im at he will find me and just hang out even plays with the dogs. Really cool!

Re: Mulie @ 460

Congrats on the nice buck and a great hunt with your son!

Chuckling here about the dial-up... I think a lot of us have been there. Yeah, I carry the rangefinder on my belt. Have been using it long enough that it's pretty standard for me to just grab the rangefinder, then spin the dial on the scope - if I'm carrying that rifle.

Often I'll just pre-set my 300 yard dope on a rifle and hunt with it that way most of the time. Dialing only if I'm trying to make a shot way the heck out there.

Regards, Guy

Re: Mulie @ 460

Great post, season and buck.

I could go on for a lot of words about different goof's I've made! So far none have cost me any game. Just an embarrassing miss on a rock.
