    Wyoming Mule Deer 2019

    That's a genuinely nice compliment, but there's gotta be a good number of guys on here with a better looking collection of muley heads, we all know of a few just off hand.

    Solid bull, congrats and I'm sure you were quite relieved.

    Agree. Other guys around the area have noted the same.

    Moving it around butchering, twisting to separate the head, etc. and the one side got torn up to it so I just peeled it off. The other side was just as fragile, I just didn't touch it much. It'll all get peeled after boiling.

    9 twist, which I expect is why it was available at an attractive price. I'd never build it that way, but I don't have anything to hunt under about 7,000' so it spins 95's fine.

    Not new but new to me. 6mm-250 on a 700, pac-nor mtn rifle contour, manners eh6, 95 bergers.

    Wyoming Mule Deer 2019

    He was at 700-something with not much for stalking cover. I'd hoped to set up prone at 200-300, but as I started down and across he fed up and out of view into a pocket on the hillside. I changed plans and headed downwind, then up to his elevation to work across the face with a decent breeze in...

    Wyoming Mule Deer 2019

    We'll do quite a few pictures this go-round, though as always the best ones have too much terrain to include. I rolled out early the day before the opener into a spot I hadn't hunted in a number of years. The plan was to meet a buddy up high who'd been in on horseback hunting with a bow. He'd...

    Bulls, hell holes, and empty Camelbaks

    There was some hunting that got done yes. I'll see if I can get around to it at lunch.

    Bulls, hell holes, and empty Camelbaks

    Glad it shook out alright. I ran out once on an off trail elk packout, probably half as many hours though. I remember laying next to the creek for a long time just drinking and drinking, then having no voice the next day. Congrats on the bull!

    How many rounds for a season?

    I carry 13-14 in the field. I like to have enough on hand at home to check zero periodically and troubleshoot through the season if I take a tumble on the rifle/scope; 20-25+ additional is what I prefer to have on hand for that task.

    Barrel Recommendations

    PacNor has a barrel weight calculator that is handy for getting close: Barrel Weight Calculator You don't have to put radius in there to calculate it btw. You could go light contour and chop it short, but it'd be kind of an odd combo with the chambering and burly stock, at least on paper. And as...

    I'm 20 years old. What's your excuse?

    Hit a bruh up on IG. Thus far he has footage of an antelope running away, so there's that.

    Don’t laugh... What is your hunting rig?

    This is true. I have a $1000 beater mountain rig I can ramble around in for that, but then I have two vehicles to deal with all the time. Someday soon it'll breath it's last and I'll be down to one; then I'll really have to put some thought into it.

    Don’t laugh... What is your hunting rig?

    I can get to probably 90% of where I like to hunt in a front wheel drive Honda. There is a point at which tire size, 4wd, and clearance start mattering of course.
