You have another thing coming if you think you have heard about all of the best deer hunting stories!  Check out his awesome video story of a Colorado-resident and also a combat veteran who was out hunting cow elk in his home state and ended up bringing back a record breaker muley buck:

In late 2014 Brett Ross took the hunting community by storm, but he is not a professional or successful trophy hunter. He is a hunter who harvested one of the largest deer ever taken. As far as we know, Ross is one of the few meat hunters to ever become famous, and Colorado’s deer is what got him there.

Colorado’s Deer tells the story behind the giant buck and the unlikely hunter who shot him. The film follows Brett Ross, a meat hunter from Colorado who went out on a hunt for cow elk with a mule deer tag in his pocket and came back as a local hero with a story he will tell for the rest of his life.
