Well it weren't long range, but it was long on fun. He was not in a place to take a long poke and in fact it's one of the closest shots I've ever had at a mature mule deer. Took him with a standing off hand shot between 50 to 60 yards. Sure was a great time in Colorado this weekend despite the very warm temperatures. I hope the rest of you boys headed that way do as well or better.

Side view with Big Sky Jr. at my side. It just doesn't get any better than this!

Nice going. Long or short, decent buck.

What area you hunting in? If you don't want to say, I understand completely.

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
