I've been able to put in the time but just haven't found what I was looking for until yesterday. The wind turbine project behind built on our mule deer place have moved the deer around some it seems, as they have been very hard to find, at least for me. Decided to spend the day hiking/hunting a section of the ranch void of roads, cattle, people, and unfortunately elevation change. It is about 5 square miles of flat sandy country with scattered mesquite patches. Had only seen a couple of does until about 2:30 in the afternoon. I was walking by a very small and unimpressive patch of mesquite when unexpectedly, a doe bounced out of the middle of it, trotting off about 140 yds or so I'd guess. Not surprisingly, a buck from the same brush stood up and followed her out there, quartering away. The sticks were already set for a standing shot, and the139gr Scenar from the Tikka T3x 6.5 entered in front of the hing quarter, and exited about 6" behind the off shoulder. Impressive penetration and performance for sure, This was actually my first big buck kill (8x8, 29" wide) with that particular bullet

Dang nice buck JG. I've considered the 139 Scenar for my 6.5 PRC, but not sure if the extra velocity over the Creed, will be a problem.

Great buck! We have some of those big grass flats where we hunt, know they hold game but very hard areas to hunt.

That sucks about the wind turbines. Man I hate those things


For it is not the quarry that we truly seek, but the adventure.

That was my question as well. I live in Amarillo and our muley season ended several weeks ago in panhandle.
