Any body know the whereabouts of this deer ?

A number ( a big number [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img] ) of years ago I was rifle hunting mule deer in the Uncompaghre national forest south of Delta . I came upon a hunter from Texas who had made a great shot, extreme downhill angle at several hundred yards .

It was pretty warm and he was going to skin the deer and get the meat in ice chests right away . Problem was he didn't have a camera and really wanted to get pix of him and his deer . I always carry a small camera and offered to take his pic and mail them to him.

Well as you have probably already guessed I lost his name and address . It occured to me that he or someone that has seen this buck may come to this site . As they say "stranger things have happened " I've always regretted not getting his pic to him and thought it couldn't hurt to try this .

    from the looks of the clothing, shoes, haircut, and that funky facial hair- I'd have to say it was from the late 70's-early 80's.
