Default Got my first choice

We have a drawing lotterry for deer tags in our state I put in for the any deer plus any antlerless deer and got it. This one is not easy to draw as its for Mule deer Bucks. I didn't get to hunt last year because of the broken foot so this year will be even sweeter. Will be trying out the new CZ 550 270.

My place is in Pennington county North of I-90 and thats where I drew mine. Except for a few years in the Service, last year was the first year I have missed since I was 12. There are some big bucks all along the Cheyenne River. Two years ago we found a whitetail rack that was way up in the record book in that area. Unfortunately the deer was no longer attached to the rack.

Go Get 'Em!

I shot some very very small groups with my Encore.....3 shot groups in the .2-.3" range. Trigger job really made a difference!

I am going to have to get mine done too. Its not bad but it could be better, Doe Dumper. I have not checked the dates yet but its in November. Get your leather gloves ready.

I have to get out and start shooting again. The weather for once, has been to hot instead of to cold.
