First Mule Deer

By Jon Bennett

November 18, 2021

This year I was lucky enough to draw a Mule Deer Buck tag and with the help of the 6mm Creedmoor 103gr ELD-X Precision Hunter I was able to harvest this big fella. My hunting buddies were skeptical whether I had enough bullet to kill a deer. I hit him a little past 100yds it hit him just behind his right leg, obliterated the rib that it hit, and continued through the left shoulder. He took two steps then laid down and died. The bullet didn't make it out the left side so I was able to weigh it after the hunt. It weighed in at 56.5 grains. I couldn't be happier with the performance.
