Great time in Wyoming

I Shot this buck at 600 yds with my new 7WSM Stiller. I knew his right prong was broke when I shot but I couldn't pass on a buck with this mass and height. We probably looked over a hundred bucks and only saw maybe five in the upper 70s to lower 80s. I can not wait to get back out west.

    I measured him in the field at around 15.5. The taxidermist said close to 16. I didn't mess with getting below the hair and measuring from the longest spot. I rough scored him at a little over 79". I have a tough time holding out for "trophies". I just enjoy the hunt. The next time I go antelope hunting I will be holding out for something over 82 though. Could be a few years though as the mule deer is next on my agenda.

    You DID hold out for a trophy. Mule Deer will fill your dreams. In my opinion trophy mule deer are the hardest tags to punch...great country though.

    Good job and good hunting.

    Thanks for the compliments. I am going to try to take a few weeks on the mule deer hunt. I know it is going to be a little more difficult than antelope.
