This fall I was fortunate enough to be invited to an annual Wyoming pronghorn hunt that has been taking place well before my time as an outdoor writer. I’m not the first Petersen’s Hunting staff member to be given a cot underneath a canvas tent on this ranch, but, personally, it was my first antelope hunt. Heck, this was my first time hunting Western big-game in such open landscape. But lucky for me, the bowhunting-and-buckshot kind of deer hunter that I usually am, I’d be sent afield with Nosler’s latest sporting rifle—the Nosler 21.
Nosler introduced this rifle in September of 2021 as a premium and durable option for big-game hunters and accuracy-minded shooters alike. A few of the hunter-friendly features include a crisp, single-stage trigger for accurate long-range shots, a match-grade barrel with threaded muzzle for those who wish to screw on a suppressor or muzzle brake and a lightweight carbon fiber stock for the inevitable wear and tear of backcountry hunting.
