Welcome to Muley Monday, today is a little walk down memory lane. Ryan Hatfield is the author of the series know as Idaho’s greatest. With the recent release of the second edition of Idaho’s Greatest Mule Deer, Ryan joins me to share some of the behind the scenes from the stories from the newest book. What started as a way to capture the stories of his uncle’s big bucks, led down a path to digging up the stories behind hundreds of Idaho’s greatest Mule Deer ever killed. If you enjoy old time stories of big bucks and bulls you will enjoy Ryan’s Books.
