#74 WADE GASTIN

Now that is a what a happy hunter looks like! This 8x5 30" buck would make every avid mule deer hunter esctatic. Another monster from the 2010 season. October was often called the dog days of mule deer hunting on SRI. The rut hadn't showed up yet, but...

#75 JON SMITH  

Jon also shot Buck #101, the buck that sits on the website portal to the List. Look at his crazy nonypicals on his left antler. Just a great buck. This buck is less that 28" wide, but notice the height on it. Also has great beams, and matching eyeguards....

#76 PATRCK WHITE

Another exceptional buck. Then again, aren't all of these bucks bruisers? Looking at the totality of the Top 100, 2010 was a year of really big bucks. 2006 had the best overall average for all tophy bucks, at an amazing 206, but for really big bucks, 20...

Craig came out to Santa Rosa Island for the first time in 2003 with his good friend George "Dump Bear" Cook. They are both avid mule deer hunters. On this particular day...

This buck doesn't have big height, but boy, he has everything else. This 30" buck has the width, the mass, the nontypical points, the good eyeguards, and good tine length. After guiding for 30+ years, I've gotten to the point of asking mule deer cli...

Who doesn't like a drop-tine buck?  This one has a great one. It's heavier at the end of it compared to its base. This buck still has near-perfect velvet, and we worked hard to preserve. Nothing quite like having a huge drop time velvet on your wall.

The guide for Mark...

#80 JACK ELKINS

Talk about a classic Santa Rosa Island buck. This buck exhibits so many traits that are characteristic of these Kaibab-strain mule deer that resided on SRI. Wide, heavy, nice eyeguards, and several non-typical points to make it interesting. As well, it h...

#81 ROB TROWBRIDGE

Here is another buck that has that particular trait of having an extra biforcation of extra points between the G-3 and G-4, while also having a very short G-2 on his left antler. Rob was great guy to be in camp with. I never got to guide him personall...

#82 PETER BOLLINGER 

Peter holds the spot of #82 on our Top 100 Santa Rosa Island Mule Deer List. Peter first hunted with us in 1980, long before many people knew about our hunting operation on Santa Rosa Island.  This buck was shot the night before and it was too dark...

#85 CARY WELDON. The Lost photo was found!

This is the third and final buck in the Top 100 shot in 2000. The other two were Bob George and Ken Lund, both in the '90's. Cary and Wes were friends long before they both came to Santa Rosa Island, so it was very special for...
