    I thought it was close several years back my dad and I hunted near wood cutter mtn. We were told that their were some mule deer around craig .Have you had any luck with mulies in your area?

    Beautiful picture, thanks for posting.

    What bullet/load were you using? I acquired a 308 Norma Mag this past summer but haven't gotten around to any load development yet.
