    Shot this one last week on a guided hunt in Eastern Colorado. The body on this deer was massive - weighed close to 350# and had a 28" neck!!

    It was a great hunt!!

    J&D Outfitters = Doyle Worbington

    I have hunted with Doyle several times and have been 100% on elk and deer = he runs an awesome operation!!

    Shot was only 110 yards - we found him on the first evening laying by himself.
