#98 Santa Rosa Island Mule Deer Buck-- Jay Brasher
November 26, 2014
On the previous hunt, I had another client on this buck. Somehow he mistook this nontypical buck in velvet for a 170 class hard-horned buck. I remember watching this buck run off after that client shot and saying to him" You missed, put another shell in for the next shot at him". When I dropped my binoculars, I suddenly saw a different buck was laying in the canyon, dead as can be.
To say the least, Jay was the lucky recepient of that client's misfortune. Jay hunted several years with us out there, and this was his biggest buck with us. As usual, his partner Steve Fullmer was with him. Steve's buck taken on the same day is yet to appear on the Top 100.
