    Drew a late season buck tag for the unit north of me and bagged a pretty nice mule deer today. Shot was 406 yards with a 10mph wind from about my 4 o clock. He was kinda quartering to me facing to my left. Shot him with my Ruger no.1 in 7mm stw with a 160gr Nosler Accubond. Bullet entered just behind his left shoulder and stopped in the hide in his right hind quarter. Bullet ended up weighing 98.2gr ( 61% weight retained) and dropped him in his tracks.

    Nice shot, great deer. Got to love those accubonds, fly straight and true with great accuracy and do some serious damage on all game. Dropped my first whitetail with 180 grain accubond out of a 300. wsm this year. Just love that bullet

    Nice pictures but should have included one with the rifle. Hunting with a #1 is a lot of fun.
