Without help from Chris, I would have never got this done, as it would have been physically impossible. Chris packed my mule deer out for me, and he helped me quarter every animal. I got released from more limitations, but I am still as weak as a kitten, and wear out quick. I had a great time and even borrowed two of Chris's revolvers too boot. Feels good to get back in the saddle!
I did some hunting last week with a variety of handguns. It was a great week!
Mule Deer at 280ish yards with a 6.5 Creed XP-100 142 LR AB off of a tri-pod with Hog Saddle type clamp


Buck antelope with my 44 Magnum Franken-Ruger at around 110 yards-240 grain XTP (Black Hills Ammo)


Doe antelope with a 686 S&W at 124 yards. 158 grain XTP FP


Doe antelope at 255 yards with a 6 BR XP-100 Old School Remington Factory ammo 100 grain Corelokt


Coyote with a Performance Center 44 Mag at 91 yards - 240 grain Sierra JHP
