Mule deer loitering around office parks is not an uncommon sight in Colorado Springs, which nestles at the foot of Pike’s Peak in Colorado’s Front Range. In the 10 years George Kroll has worked as a foreman at J.E. Dunn Construction, he has grown accustomed to seeing bucks grazing amid the sprinklers in early morning or even bedded under pines during the heat of the day.
Deer that many hunters would consider bucks of a lifetime have for Kroll and his co-workers been, well, just another day at the office. Until this spring, when a muley with a rack straight out of a science fiction movie showed up and topped them all.
