The True Icon of the West!
Sportsmen with an eye for the good ol' days of big game hunting in North America will delight in B&C's third installment of its visually stunning Retrospective Series. This latest book focuses on the iconic mule deer of the West with hundreds of vintage photographs, chapters about historical mule deer hunting areas, and detailed accounts of dozens of noteworthy mule deer trophies recognized by B&C.
No one can deny that the Golden Era of mule deer hunting happened decades ago with nearly 80 percent of the top 50 mule deer recognized by the Boone and Crockett Club being taken before 1976 -- some taken as far back as the 1800s. A Mule Deer Retrospective has a special section dedicated to these historic bucks, which include such well-known trophies as Ed Broder's World's Record non-typical mule deer taken near Chip Lake, Alberta, in 1926, and Doug Burris's Colorado King taken in 1972, which still reigns as the World's Record typical mule deer.
This book has informative chapters by some of today's top-notch mule deer enthusiasts including:
- Guy Eastman - Eastman's Publishing
- Miles Moretti - The Mule Deer Foundation
- Ryan Hatfield - Western Hunter and Elk Hunter Magazines
- Jim Heffelfinger - Arizona Game and Fish Department
- Wayne Van Zwoll - Outdoor Writer
Typically speaking, mule deer hunters are bit more fanatical about the game they pursue than most of their sportsmen brotherhood. With the vast amount of photographs, entertaining correspondence, and historical trophy data, A Mule Deer Retrospective will not disappoint even the most discerning hunter!
