BO3-@3-A 117/@0 smal|TownPapers' Inc. 217 W Cota St WA 98584 Shelton, Council Mountain Monster aY DALE FISK There used to be more monsters in our mountains than there are now. They were never common, but these days they are extremely hard to find. I'm talking about monster mule deer. Of course size isn't everything, but a big set of antlers has always sent a hunter's heart rate through the roof, and they probably always will. Roy and Shirley Eastlick came to Council in the waning years of the big buck era--the 1960s. But there was at least one big boy left up on Council Mountain, and they found him. Roy killed this monster buck in 1975. He scored 203 points in the Boone & Crocket record book. The Safari Club International has their own scoring method, and ranked this trophy as 11 th in the world in the typical mule deer class.

They got started at 2:00 in the afternoon and managed to get the last fence post planted behind the sign just before the sun went down.
