"Awesome Double Dropper Montana P&Y Muley"

Tyler Bumgarner writes, "The first day I saw this deer I couldn't believe my eyes, the most unique deer I have ever seen in real life. I put a good stalk on him the first day, sneaking to 30 yards. I could only see the tips of his antlers protruding though the sage brush bottom where he was bedded. I was ready to shoot when he got up only to watch him walk straight away from me which didn't present me with a shot. Talk about a bummer of a day, I didn't think I would ever get a chance at a deer of this caliber again. I hunted hard for the next 3 weeks, glassing almost every day trying to find him. On the last weekend of the Montana archery season I spotted him again in the exact same spot. This time I made it happen. He gross scores over 215" and officially netted 205-1/8" into the Pope and Young record books. Most of the deductions are due to a lack of a 7" G3 on his right side, but I will take the 4 extra stickers any day. Truly a buck of a lifetime."
