It all started with phone call from my brother, Dallas. "You lucky SOB, your name was drawn for the Super tag," he told me. "I couldn't believe it - best $50 I have ever spent. After the initial shock wore off, it was time to start scouting for the "WOW" buck."
Ryan's Super Hunt adventure ended with him getting his "WOW" buck. The buck unofficially scored 220" Boone & Crockett, and is 34 1/2" wide.
The state record score for a typical mule deer is 215 5/8, and for a nontypical it is 320 4/8. The Boone and Crockett world record typical mule is 226 4/8, and nontypical is 355 2/8.
