    I thought I would share a photo of my nephew and his harvest. He made a nice 320 yard one shot kill with his 243 in a Rem 700 factory rifle. This was his first Wyoming hunt and a memorable one. This antelope came out of a pretty poor area but has decent mass as well as length.

    That's a decent first 'lope, especially from some area's. He looks happy, enough said.

    Nice goat! Congrats to him. I had a 7RM like that gun and was a pretty accurate gun. Some people have better luck with tem than others.

    Holy crap, I'd shoot that buck in a heart beat and not have any reservations about it. Congratulations to your nephew!

    Very Nice Congratulations. I bagged my first one when I was 16 & fell in love with the West. Great Hunt.
