While shed hunting the exact hillsides Popeye use to roam had me dreaming of walking over the ridge and seeing this Legendary deer. Many great deer still roam the hills but will there ever be such a Legendary deer again? Most likely not. With modern-day communication and social media, the chances of such a monster deer going undocumented are very slim.
Legends Never Die is dedicated to bringing back the memories of bucks from the past that are “Legendary.” We have all seen photos of giant bucks from back in the hay day, and with jaws dropped open, have only dreamt about the chance at a buck of a lifetime like that. In this segment, you will see never before seen photos of Legendary deer like Popeye, Morty, King Crab, and many more. This series of photos were taken by A.Ellis from 1989-1994 and brought back to life by us at www.ehuntr.com
All these deer roamed public land in Western Wyoming, most never being taken by a hunter. Many deer in this series will have several years of their photos. When coming up with a name for this series of photos we used a spin-off 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. For any questions on these deer, or if you’re interested in seeing all the pictures in the series, make sure to follow us.
