Kyle Jones is the hunter over in the Old Scratch family.
This big mule deer was recenly taken by him on their hunting trip near the Black Hills in South Dakota.
Well over 300 lbs. and with a 26 inch spread, he shot the big mule deer at around
250 yards in a blinding snow storm with one shot from his trusty rifle. They had a great hunt with Greg (Old Scratch), Wilbur Herring, and Buddy Walley all getting deer too. Of course their deer were complete accidents and Greg's may have been shot while it was peacefully sleeping. I can't quite get the story from them.
They also managed to blast the Upland Feathers out of some snow covered pheasants. More pics from their hunt later.
Another of my readers named Rusty Arendale sent this pic of a vicious beast that he barely escaped from. The gigantic wild cat almost got him and only a well placed shot as it charged saved his life. That is his story and he is sticking to it. The big Bobcat would look great, stuffed on the fireplace mantle at Kristines house.
