70 year old keeps tagging trophies (by Brett French)
Bill Butler has had a hankering to hunt ever since he was a youngster. Despite now being in his 70s, that zest for prey hasn’t diminished. Last year, just before his 70th birthday, he tagged the largest mule deer ever while hunting in Mexico. This fall he shot the biggest elk he’s ever killed while hunting in Wyoming. Butler has written a book about his exploits, and continues to create new ones despite suffering a stroke that left him temporarily paralyzed on one side.
