So deer season has been done for a little over 2 weeks and grouse finished 2 days ago. That means it is time to go rifle hunting.

Bagged a Sako 85 laminated stainless in Rem 260. Topped it with a Swaro Z3 3-10x by 42mm:





Gonna sight it in tomorrow and chase some coyotes shortly thereafter.

Very sweet rig. I really like the gray laminate with the stainless. I did that on a custom Ruger 10/22 build and love it. cheers
