Title: Washington State Whitetail, Success!
Post by: andrebeergog on January 07, 2011, 10:24:39 AM
It's been a few years for me and I finally got my deer this year ;D!  We hunt in Eastern Washington on public land so the pickens can be kind of slim.  I shot this guy at maybe 50 feet with a Tikka T3 Lite Hunter 270wsm (amazing rifle for the price by the way!) topped with a Nikon Monarch 4-16x50 BDC scope using 140 grain Federal premium accubonds.  This combo shoots 3/4" groups at 100 yards all day long, and makes it look easy, I love it!

It was an amazing hunt!

Congrats!  I only saw one legal buck when I was armed this year - and he was way out of range.
