Son's 477 yard shot

We made our annual trek to Bruce Ranch near Newcastle Wyoming last week for mulies and antelope. The blizzard added a few hours to our trip as we had to come up from I80 but we made it.

My 13 year old son made another great shot with his 260 remmy. One shot at 477 yards with 140 VLDS put a BIG hole in this goat.

Congratulations Jarod!!

You and that 260 are proving to be a deadly combination. Keep up the practice, you're doing great.

Very nice, I am jealous to say the least!

Congrats! Looks like a happy young hunter, and he should be.

I didn't get to Wyoming this year. Need to make a return trip.

Sweet shooting. .260 Rem is a fun cartridge.
