Alberta Mule Deer

Albertabuck1 The hunt reports are starting to pour it. Outdoor Life publisher Eric Zinczenko just returned from Alberta where he shot this stud of a mule deer.

He was hunting with Mike’s Outfitting and he and his guide, Chris, put a stalk on this buck on day two. Eric used the hunt to christen a new rifle—a Bansner Ultimate One chambered in .270 WSM. The rifle is a tack-driver, turning in half-inch, three-shot groups.

This was plenty of accuracy for this hunt.

Albertabuck2 Eric shot the buck at 200 yards with a 130-grain bullet. The buck grosses 184 3/8 and is so perfect and symmetrical that it should net around 181. But regardless of score, this buck has it all—the width, the height, nice deep forks and just a little bit of junk for some added character.
