Default Huge CO Non-Typical Mulie

My cousin in Grand Junction sent me this pic. It shows a friend of his son with an absolute monster of a mulie buck. The deer was taken in CO's 2nd rifle season in unit 421 in the Grand Mesa Area. Looking at the photo I count 15 points on one antler and 14 on the other. The spread will be at least 40 inches.

As soon as they got to town they took the buck to the Grand Junction DOW office. The DOW supplied the hunter with the name of an official scorer for the B&C record book. The rack cannot be officially scored for at least a 60 day drying period but it should rank high in the book.



Not bad for a local guy hunting for meat on his own without a guide. This is truly a once in a lifetime buck!

I seen this picture from another source. Said the green score was 308+ inches 42" wide and 17 x 18 points. Truly a buck of a lifetime and possible NO 1 non typical mule deer. I thought those beasts were a thing of the past. It's a wonder there wasn't a rumor of this buck floating around campfires. Good thing all the professionals would have been after him.

I was just in CO. All I saw were 2x2's. 2x3's at the most. And they are not skittish like white tails.

That would be typical for mulie hunting. Like whitetails, the majority of the bucks will be younger animals and as such they don't have the survival instincts of an older animal. Mulies also behave differently than whitetails do. Always have, always will.

My first time in CO; I noticed the buck to doe ratio is highly skewed. Like 30 does to every buck.

My cousin didn't take the buck. A friend of his son did.
