Cody Grubb’s 2022 Wyoming Buck

MDF Life Member Cody Grubbs shares a quick story about his 2022 Wyoming high country buck.

“It was a new spot to me that has had some big bucks come out it in the past. I went in not knowing what to expect but planned for three days. It was about a two-hour hike to get to the glassing spot. As soon as I found a flat spot to set up my spotter I found the buck almost immediately.

“I shot the deer above some cliffs in a grassy feeding area. The buck fell and landed on a ledge right on the edge of the cliff. So, I set up my tent and settled in with a big fire, not wanting to be on the cliff as it got dark. In the dark, I planned to get to the buck through the ribbon cliffs and get him quartered. After quartering the buck, I loaded him up in my pack, and started to pick my way across the other end of the cliff. When I made it down safely, I loaded up my camp and the whole deer and hiked the couple miles back to my rig.”
