Sometimes, the High Points of a Hunt Don't Involve Animals

I filled my tag, but that only set off a chain of events that lead to a 6-hour ordeal involving body damage and electrical issues with my truck.

Approx 3 year-old doe, double-lung, about 250 yards, no meat loss, due to the use of a 140 gr Partition and not hitting the shoulders. Rifle is a Ruger M77 Mk II ("Sporter"?), .270 Winchester, wearing Leupold VX-3 3.5-10x40mm, with a Harris model H ultralight bipod.

But, even while exercising the demons, the majesty of the desert was still surrounding us. (Stowing some cables, after a secondary battery was donated by the Camper Special {dual batteries}, to the ailing Ranger - note the antelope legs and home-made big game carrier sticking out of the bed.)
