You know Len-- you ought to write that up and sell it (assuming good pics.). That "El Diablo" part is a great twist. Something editors are always lookin' for.

Re: The Mexican guides called me “El Diablo”

Len,

That is one really cool story, with a really funny twist to it!!

I used to hunt the Sonoran desert quite extensivly for mule deer and some couse deer a little higher. Lots of fond memories down there! [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

My answer to this is. The only reason is to make the 7 RM look good. There is no other reason.

Jeff.

Re: The Mexican guides called me “El Diablo”

I was cleaning pictures off my hard drive when I came across this one. It is from my mule deer hunt in Wyoming in 2004. If you look closely, just over my left shoulder is a rock formation called Devil's Tower. I had just killed a deer at about 650 yards and my son, Andy, was my spotter.

Seems this thread is an appropriate place to post it.

Good to see ya!

Good hunting picture but like a lot of that seasons pictures it makes the place(s) look a little stark.

(I just can't get the vision of mashed potatoes blasting through my mind's eye every time I see that tower!)

Hmmm, mark of the beast. No doubt, a MK can leave a Beastly
mark.
Good story & a great shot & thanks for sharing.
