Stan Petersen 2007
here is what Stan had to say about his hunt:
This is my first Coues Deer! I took it on opening day at about 8:30 in the morning. It took me about 3 1/2 hours to get it back to camp, with my pack, binos, scope, rangefinder, water, extra jacket and all the misc. stuff that goes with you. I had to take my pack and rifle ahead 50 or so yards then go back and get the deer. I got to about a 1/4 mile from my truck and went ahead with my pack and rifle then went back and carried the deer the rest of the way. I am 65 years old and thinking about finding a partner to hunt with but all the young kids don’t seem to want to have this much fun. Sometimes I think I am getting to old for this, until I get back to the truck… then I think that wasn’t that bad. I shot it at a range of 365 yards with my Winchester Model 70 .270 with hand loads with 130gr Nosler Ballistic Tip. I have shoot a lot of Deer and Arrowed a few also, but this was one of the most thrilling hunt I have had! This buck scored 95 3/8.
