    The .25-06 strikes again:

    260 yards, mule deer, 115 gr Nosler Ballistic Tip

    160 yards, pronghorn, same load & rifle

    420 yards, coyote, same load & rifle

    It was a real good hunt with some very nice folks. Have grown real fond of this Remington 700 CDL & 6x scope as my general purpose hunting rifle. It keeps on filling tags!

    Hope everyone has a good season. Guy

    Really nice pictures! Congratulations and well done! :)

    Have been dreaming about a pronghorn hunt since I started reading Elmer Keith about 10 years ago.

    You should do the pronghorn hunt. It's really a lot of fun, trying to figure out how to get close and make a good shot.

    Their herd behavior is a pretty good defense against predators & hunters. If they get uncomfortable about something - they just leave, fast!

    Stalking them in the wind & rain showers was actually a lot of fun. Look out for the small cactus plants in the grass!

    Regards, Guy

    Great bunch of animals you've got there! Thanks for sharing the pics.

    I keep seeing all of these harvest photos with .25-06's. I might have to look into one.
