Colorado's Deer - A goHUNT original film

Colorado's Deer is a short film that tells the story of what happened when a meat hunter from Colorado, hunting for cow elk in 2014, accidentally stumbled onto a deer that turned out to be one of the largest mule deer to have ever been taken.

We are right alongside Brett Ross from his story of the hunt, the social media frenzy that followed, the drama of the official scoring event by Boone & Crockett and everything in between.

Shortly after, photos began to surface on social media with speculation of this being one of, if not the largest nontypical mule deer ever taken. Colorado's Deer provides an inside look at the story behind the hunt and the aftermath that followed.

I've been writing all the editions of the book, Colorado's Biggest Bucks and Bulls, and this is by far one of the finest bucks I have ever seen. My book is about great stories and great photos and what I love about this hunting story is the family and the hunter that appreciate such a truly gift of God. Hunting for me is a tribute to the wonders of nature and this buck is truly a wonder. I also think it is neat that the hunter was a meat hunter. Of all the hundreds of stories and thousands of photos I've collected for my three editions of the book, almost all of the B&C bucks were taken by accident when a hunter was meat hunting. How cool is that? I'll likely never harvest such a creature but I am honored to have seen most of the biggest bucks ever taken in Colorado that are entered in B&C, P&Y and Longhunter for muzzleloaders. Breathtaking. Semper Fi.

Just saying: Hunting is more about tradition, family and friends than a B&C score. Well done telling the story.
