    A number ( a big number /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif ) 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.

    what state are you talking about? the National Forest south of Delta in my state is the Fish Lake national forest.

    That would be Colorado. I have hunted the Uncompahgre 5 or 6 times. Pretty area. You must be from Utah. I've hunted the Fishlake NF 3 times for muleys with a bow. Saw a beautiful 6x6 bull at 10 yards but no tag. Probably 340+.
    Hunted the Manti LaSal NF in 2004 black powder for muleys. My buddy and I both scored on small bucks, went home happy.

    jimm,
    awesome pic,he could just be the man who put a smudge on my driving record. looks a bit different with a grin and no baseball bat in his hands though. I had better follow you up next time closer to the speed limit.
