Hunting Memories

High Mountain Trophy

The 2002 Nevada deer season turned out great for Ron Rishwain. He was hunting with Big Horn Oufitters of Minden, Nevada, on the opening day when he took this terrific mule deer buck.

Using spotting scopes to spot the buck in the valley the Friday evening before opening day, they hiked in the dark up to the top to catch the bucks heading to their resting beds high above the heat. The buck was shot at 200 yards with a 7mm and measured 29 inches.
