I shot this record-book mule deer down in Colorado, north of Granby at the C Lazy U ranch during the state’s fourth rifle season, which takes place during the peak of the rut. The buck is unusual not only for his massive rack, but because he was wearing a radio collar as part of a study being conducted by Colorado wildlife biologists on big-buck mortality.
