After several days of planning for a three day horseback and backpack hunt in the Andes I made it happen. We got it to the hunting spot after a 15 mile (5 hour) horseback trip. This hunt took place at an average altitude of 12000 feet. The whitetail deer we have here is a subspecie of whitetail called Odocoileus virginianus USTUS, almost the same thing, they just dont get as big as in the States. The first afternoon I spoted a group of three deer, one buck and 2 does, at around 900 yards, and I cant shoot that far accurately so I tried to close in the distance but they were feeding near wild cattle, and the cattle moved away and the deer runned away with them, but suddenly they changed direction and started walking and feeding towards where I was. They came out of sight at around 500 yards and popped back up in a little hill at exactly 260 yards. I got ready for the shot, range the buck at 247 yards, and squeezed one shot out of my 270 Win, Winchester Mod 70, rifle, muzzle velocity 2890 fps, accubond 140 grain, that hit him in the boiler room, DRT!!!. Not the biggest buck around but the hunt was fun. I hunted hard for two more days and saw 20 more deer, no other big bucks, just little bucks, does and fawns. I also spotted 3 different Spectacled Bears, nice critters, they are considered an endangered specie. Anyway, nice hunting trip, hope you enjoy the pics.
