Gus’s 2022 Northern Arizona Mule Deer Hunt w/Best Of The West Arizona, 800 Yard One-Shot Harvest
We joined our buddy Gus on his 2022 late deer hunt in northern Arizona. Once we heard Gus drew this tag we immediately wanted to help. Of course we offered Gus a Huskemaw Long-Range System to use for his hunt with the expectation that we would also train him to use it. Gus selected one of our in-house 7mmRemMag custom systems topped with a Huskemaw 5-30x56 Tactical Hunter long-range optic. As the hunt approached we were happy to learn that our old friend, Frank Damato’s daughter would be joining us. Frank was Gus’s hunting partner for more than 15 years before he unexpectedly passed away April 26, 2021. Having Gina, her husband Justin and her brother-in-law Jake in camp to lend a hand really made this a special occasion for us to be part of. To add to that, Brett from BOTWAZ was able to get away from the shop for a bit and spend some much needed quality time in the field and as always he played a big part in Gus’s success. This was not a “long-range” hunt by design. In fact, there were many occasions we thought we might tag out at close range but as the circumstances played out Gus’s target buck was located exactly 800 yards across a large opening, making a stalk nearly impossible. Thankfully Gus had the right gear and the proper training to make an ethical shot and close out his hunt. His target buck was a mature old deer who G&F suggests may be more than 10 years old. His rack didn’t grow the points and detail he likely did years ago but his prowess during the rut was clearly on display as he worked a small group of does while several other bucks yielded to his dominance. One shot at 800 yards with a slight head wind was all it took to put the buck down for good. Gus was elated, we were pumped, Gina and the guys were stoked too! It was such a joyous occasion and we hope this video adequately captures the good times we had sharing it together. Special thanks to Dan Zellner from Lucky Canyon Outfitters for helping us be in the right place at the right time. And to Erik Guthrie of Arizona Custom Rifle Assembly for the custom 7mmMag used on this hunt. It’s a shooter for sure! Rifle: AZCRA 7mmRemMag, Defiance An-Ti action, Proof Research Barrel, Trigger Tech Special Trigger, Pierce 5-Port Side Brake, McMillan stock. Optic: Huskemaw 5-30x56 Tactical Hunter Ammo: 180gr Hornady ELDM We use Phoenix Shooting Bags to stabilize our shots.

Kevin’s 2022 Arizona Desert Mule Deer Buck w/Best of the West Arizona
Kevin won the ‘Free Guided Hunt’ with Best Of The West Arizona at the 2020 Arizona Mule Deer Organization banquet. In 2022 he drew a desert mule deer tag in southern Arizona. Kevin purchased one of all new AlTopo Long-Range systems chambered in 300 PRC topped with our Huskemaw 5-20x50 Blue Diamond LR Optic. Kevin put in some range time before the hunt and managed several days in the field scouting as well. Bucks were very hard to find on this hunt as the mule deer rut is much later in AZ than many other parts of the U.S. and Arizona Game & Fish even refers to this unit as a ‘recovery’ unit. As luck would have it we were working the same bowl we had hunted the last couple days because we had spotted a good buck in there right at last light a couple days earlier. Paul caught some movement deep in the desert brush and found a mature buck bedded between a creosote bush and a Palo Verde tree. A small buck was messing with him which caused the older buck to make slight movements that just happened to catch his eye. Bedded just 200 yards off the road, Kevin was able to setup prone after finding an angle that allowed a good chest shot. The Best Of The West rifle and Huskemaw scope performed as expected and we made quick work of a good southern Arizona buck. Congrats Kevin! We use Phoenix Shooting Bags to stabilize our shots.
