My great friend Grant Kuypers of Buck Paradise Outfitters, who you have seen me hunt with many times on TV, had an unreal season in 2016. Grant wrote:
One morning in October: I don’t get to hunt much with the business but was lucky enough to have some time after the ag harvest and before whitetail season. What a great morning it turned out to be! Left the house to head to the farm with a mule deer tag I had drawn in my pocket. Took the long route to get there and came upon this awesome heavy old muley. Love hunting with my muzzleloader!
One day in November: I had a few hours off and went out at 3 p.m. to my personal farm land many miles from where our hunt area is (I would obviously never hunt deer in the area where I guide hunters). I sat for an hour and a half and got plain lucky when this big whitetail buck came in. I had no idea he existed! As I said I don’t get much time to hunt; this was my 4th buck in 18 years, and it was awesome.
What a season Grant, way to go buddy! A ton of mass measurements on those old brutes!
