    Opening evening high country buck. Lots of open terrain but spotted this buck feeding alongside a mudslide at 113 yards. Taken with a 308 Win using a 178gr Amax. One shot kill went about 20 yards. Not much external blood but massive internal damage. This was a big bodied deer with lots of fat = heavy pack out.

    Nice deer! I thought about loading my buck into my back pack also, then I got over it and went back for my horse. Getting old sucks.

    Never seen deer as fat as these. We have had a wet summer with lots of feed. Rangeland was in excellent condition. Had about 3 inches of fat over the hind quarters.
