My Eastern Colorado mule deer

Shot this one last week on a guided hunt in Eastern Colorado. The body on this deer was massive - weighed close to 350# and had a 28" neck!!

It was a great hunt!!

    J&D Outfitters = Doyle Worbington

    I have hunted with Doyle several times and have been 100% on elk and deer = he runs an awesome operation!!

    Shot was only 110 yards - we found him on the first evening laying by himself.

    Another picture:



    Here's the specs of my rifle:

    Rifle = 7MM Mag built by Mark Gordon of Short Action Customs

    *Surgeon 1086 action
    *Bartlein 5R stainless barrel = 1-9 twist, #3 contour, 24" long, Vais brake contoured to match barrel
    *McMillan Rem Hunter stock, SAC custom pillar bedding/finish, M40A1 paint by "Short Bus"
    *Badger M4 bottom metal, Rem mag box, spring, follower
    *Jewell trigger at 2#
    *All metal cerakoted in Graphite Black
    *Seekins 30mm rings
    *NightForce NXS 3.5-15x50

    Shoots like this with premium factory hunting ammo (last group I shot before I headed to Colorado):
