    Default NV Youth Tag

    It wasn't one of my Weatherby's, but he'll be big enough soon. Both my kids drew deer and cow elk tags, so I set up to find a proper fitting rifle. I found a Remington Model 7 25th anniversary edition in 7mm-08. Fits them both good and they shoot it great. For deer I settled on 120 grain Barnes TTSX.

    So, my 12 year old son Dane and I headed to the mountains around Ely NV again late Wednesday night to see what we could find.

    We camped a ridge away from a spring that we'd seen deer at, but found deer coming through the ridge right behind camp. Nothing with horns, but as it was getting late in the season a doe would fill the freezer.

    During the night the wind kicked up and on the morning of the 31st a group of deer came up the trail to the water but were moving very quickly. Around noon we decided to go for a drive and scout around other springs. We came back to camp about 2 pm and as we pulled in I thought how interesting the sun is at different times because that looks like a buck across the ridge.....holy cow it was a nice buck standing with a doe. They were just staring at the truck that was still running.

    My son got out of the truck and took a shot at 175 yards, the deer went down with a spine shot and once we got up to it a well placed finishing shot took care of it. The caliber and bullets performed well, but nothing hits like a Weatherby.

    Great deer and a nice big bodied buck whose cape is already at the taxidermist and the meat is at the processor.
