As I'm not so patiently waiting for the AZ elk and antelope draw results, my mind wanders towards guns, specifically mule deer guns, what would be your ultimate rifle, scope, and caliber combinations for the following mule deer habitats:

Rolling Sage Brush (Nevada, southern Idaho, Wyoming)

Canyon Country / Desert (Southern Utah, Southwestern Colorado)

Alpine (Colorado Western Slope)
This is mine. I’ve worked long and hard for her. She is light and superbly accurate. It is a custom Tikka T3x Veil Wideland in 6.5 cm topped with Sako’s premium rings and a Vortex Viper 4 to 16. A few of the custom bits are Mountain Tactical, bolt handle, bottom metal, and billet clip. 0D230D3C-58AC-4EED-BF3C-91901359B859.jpeg 7CE41CC7-EFB7-466D-A272-BE816557E9AA.jpeg

I took my Remington 700 in 7mm to my good friend to get trued up. Leupold glass, I’m looking at a Greyboe stock to put on it. It shoots 4” groups at 830 yards, with the right guy shooting it.

I thought about this long and hard. My first choice would be my Rem 700 270, or Win Model 70 featherweight 308 but no . It had to be Rem mountain ss 280Rem with Talley rings and lightweight Leupold 2x7. Shots like a dream with very little recoil,140 gr Barnes ttsx 3000 FPS , perfection at a reasonable price.
