    We made our annual trek to Bruce Ranch near Newcastle Wyoming last week for mulies and antelope. The blizzard added a few hours to our trip as we had to come up from I80 but we made it.

    My 13 year old son made another great shot with his 260 remmy. One shot at 477 yards with 140 VLDS put a BIG hole in this goat.

    Congratulations Jarod!!

    You and that 260 are proving to be a deadly combination. Keep up the practice, you're doing great.

    Congrats! Looks like a happy young hunter, and he should be.

    I didn't get to Wyoming this year. Need to make a return trip.

    Sweet shooting. .260 Rem is a fun cartridge.

    A 477 yard shot on the small kill zone of an antelope is better shooting while hunting than I have ever done, or have ever seen done.

    And a 13 year old doing it makes it seem all the more impressive.

    Great job. The 260 is one of my favorite rounds.

    I have the greatest respect for you sir. For taking your son hunting and teaching him how to get it done, the smile on his face is proof that he has learned the lessons well. Congrats to you and of course your young man there.
