    My 16 year old nephew took this buck at 790 yds using a 28 Nosler. This is my 4th year hunting antelope in Wyoming with him and his skill is remarkable. Don’t let the goofy Gilligan hat fool you, this kid is serious when it comes to the hunt.

    Congrats to the young man on a fine buck. 790 yards is a heck of a shot for anyone at any age.

    I can only take credit for the shooting solutions and manning the software we use together. Credit for the many hours at the range and the fantastic rifle belong to my brother and Benchmark Barrels. Benchmark makes one hell of a barrel.

    It’s just goofy looking. It reminds me of Gilligans’s Island and how goofy Bob Denver was back in the day.

    Good spotters, gunsmiths, and manufacturers can combine to make even us hacks, legends!

    Well done from preparation to execution.

    It’s the memories that are important. Sounds like a good family that will get many more trophies to get and stories to tell.

    I thinks that great hat is the first peace to the total shooting system, if the sun is in your eye no shot. Tell him Well Done!

    Awesome buck, great story. I'd like to try something like that one of these days. In fact, this is why I bought the 26 Nosler in the first place.
