Just part of hunting out there! No biggie. We were really out there to make sure everything was ready for between Christmas and New Year, my buddyís son comes in then, in college, so only time he gets to go.

What is 1,400 acres with good brush, water, electricity, and major highway frontage worth in that area for a deer lease?

Depends on what part of the county itís in. I wouldnít give more than $3.00/acre for 75% of the county.

I was out this past Thursday thru Sunday. Wind blew like the dickens from one direction one day and changed and blew like heck from the other direction the next day. It was warm, then cold, then back to warm. Despite all that, we saw a lot of movement. More so on the cold days than the warm ones. Me and the wife killed two hogs, two javi's and she shot a nice 8.

I'm headed back Thursday after lunch to finish out the season.

Thanks! Good luck to you! This is my last shot at it so I gotta make it happen. I've seen some good bucks, but always waiting for the bigger ones that I've seen earlier in the year. I had a good chance at a big 8 the 3rd weekend, but waited too long to make my decision. I won't let that happen again.

Finally got it done this past Thursday evening. I was watching a nice 8 when he started looking back up the canyon and sure enough this guy walked out. I thought he was a 9 at first, but when I saw that 10th point, I hung the 6.5 Swede out the window.

Then, Friday afternoon I got a little redemption on the feral barbado sheep that I missed back in April. I found them coming out of a canyon as I drove up to top to have an afternoon sit. I had the 6.5 PRC with me this time and they stopped at 272 yards. I sent a 130 gr. Accubond at them and heard the bullet hit the dark one. they took off and made it about 30 yards when the dark ram stumbled, fell and rolled down the hill. I swung on the lighter colored one and didn't make quite as good a shot, but he still went down regardless.

Congratulations Sabre, that’s a heck of a nice trans pecos whitetail. That Swede is a killer!

Thanks! I really like the Swede! That Barrett is probably my favorite rifle.
