One More For The 1877

#1 Post by Shrapnel » Wed Nov 28, 2018 9:25 am

It is nice to shoot big animals, but that isn't always the quest. I waited 5 years to get this rifle and now that I got it, I have used it on several animals this fall. Today was a small 4 point mule deer buck.

I spotted it and several other does feeding in an open field, then moving into the sage hills to escape the wind. After about a mile of sneaking and crawling through some cactus, I was able to close the gap to 208 yards and smoke this buck in his bed. He had no idea I was anywhere around and with just the one shot, killed him in his bed...
