Often these bucks were named after a nearby location where they were found. This buck was nicknamed “Cal”. For obvious reasons we won’t dive into why he was named that! But a little digging, the reason behind the name would be pretty obvious. He was only filmed 1 year on the winter range. Another true Legend of the West.
Legends Never Die is dedicated to bringing back the memories of bucks from the past that are considered “Legendary.” We have all seen photos of giant bucks from back in the hay day. Bucks that cause our jaws to drop open in disbelief. Leaving us dreaming about a chance to even see a buck of a lifetime like that EVER. In this segment, you will witness never before seen photos of Legendary deer like Popeye, Morty, King Crab and many more. This series of photos was taken by A. Ellis from 1989-1994 and brought back to life by us at www.ehuntr.com, You can check out more Legends by clicking here!
All these deer roamed public land in Western Wyoming. Most living out their entire lives never to be taken by a hunter. Many deer in this series will have several years of photos taken through different seasons of the year. Photos documenting their lives as they grew to be the giants they became. When coming up with a name for this series of photos we used a spinoff of one of our favorite movies, The Sandlot.
Big Deer get remembered, but Legends Never Die. And I think you will all agree, these deer are true Legends of the West. Make sure to follow us for more info on these deer. Check us out in our Legends Never Die category under the Big Game dropdown on our home page.
